    Degrees offered: Bachelor of Arts

    A campus or youth minister is a person who responds to the gifts and needs of young people—both adolescents and young adults. He or she "organizes, animates, and coordinates the people, programming, and resources within parish, school, and/or community-based settings to provide a comprehensive ministry effort" (National Certification Standards for Lay Ecclesial Ministers 17). The B.A. in Campus and Youth Ministry is designed to help such persons prepare for this responsibility.
