The collaborative, multi-institutional master’s degree program in Youth Development from Kansas State University draws on the expertise of graduate faculty and graduate courses from seven land-grant universities.
Faculty at these institutions share knowledge and expertise in youth development, delivering most instruction over the internet. All institutions are members of the Great Plains Interactive Distance Education Alliance and have a history of success in distance education.
Master’s Degree Program Requirements
The graduate program consists of 36 credit hours, including 10 required courses equaling 28 credit hours and 8 elective hours. The courses are offered on a rotating basis, with all courses offered at least once every other year (i.e., fall, spring, and summer).
The eight elective hours will consist of a practicum (1-3 credits), independent study (1-3 credits), or coursework. Practicum and independent study project hours will be coordinated with the major professor.

- All international students admitted to the Graduate School must demonstrate the same level of achievement as U.S. students. That is, they must hold a degree from an established institution comparable to a college or university in the United States, have an outstanding undergraduate record, have the demonstrated ability to do graduate work, and provide evidence of language proficiency sufficient for the pursuit of a graduate degree. Admission may be denied to students from technical schools, which may provide excellent training in special areas, but do not offer degrees equivalent to those of colleges and universities. As a rule, students from abroad are not admitted to nondegree status (that is, as special students). Questions about the qualifications of international students should be directed to the Graduate School.
