(1, 2, 3)

Child and Adult Advocacy Studies is an 18-credit interdisciplinary undergraduate minor. It is designed for current undergraduate students enrolled at IUP. It provides mandated reporters and first responders in criminology, education, family studies, medicine, nursing, psychology, public health, sociology, social work, and other disciplines with evidence-based, culturally relevant knowledge and skills to improve the outcomes for victims and perpetrators of interpersonal violence across the lifespan. A student’s major determines which CAAST minor s/he pursues: one minor has been designed for Psychology majors, one minor has been designed for Sociology majors, and one minor has been designed for all other majors.

Controlled Electives: 6
