Youth and Family Ministry at Augsburg College

Augsburg College’s Youth and Family Ministry (YFM) program equips students with the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to be leaders and advocates for children, youth and families in congregations, camps and other social service agencies.

  • INTERDISCIPLINARY – Combine the study of psychology, sociology, theology and ministry as a foundation for innovative discipleship with youth and families in the 21st century.
  • PRACTICAL – Gain more than 240 hours of practical experience and professional connections through our practicum, internship and volunteer opportunities on and off campus.
  • PERSONAL – Classes in the YFM program are small and professors are invested in your education and in your professional development. It is our goal that you achieve your goal upon graduation.
