Minor subject – Youth Research
Youth Research is a interdisciplinary study module that deals with youth and issues related to young people from the perspectives of the social sciences, health sciences and education. Youth Research provides knowledge on youth in today’s society and how to improve their living conditions.
As a topical and dynamic area with labour-market relevance, Youth Research is a good choice to include as a minor subject in your degree. The subject is particularly suited for students with a major subject in social sciences, education and health sciences. Youth Research at Åbo Akademi University is the only study module in this area available in Swedish in Finland.
You can choose to study Youth Research either as a short minor (25 cr) or long minor subject (60 cr). You can find more information on the courses in the Student Handbook.
