Capacity Building & Professional Development

Graduate Youth Studies Certificate

The CUNY School of Professional Studies (CUNY SPS) launches an Advanced Certificate in Youth Studies in fall 2016. The advanced certificate provides an opportunity to deepen students’ understanding of the relationship between youth and society by analyzing current policies, opportunities, and best practices related to the field. It also responds to the needs of those working in youth services by providing a pathway for professional development.  

In keeping with CUNY’s mission of providing an affordable education to all students, the Youth Studies program will offer 15 of its advanced certificate students scholarships of up to $1,275 per semester for two semesters should they meet certain enrollment and academic criteria. The deadline for Spring 2018 applications is December 29, 2017.
