  • USM student Chrishasta Gardner will be the first graduate in Mississippi to earn a minor in child advocacy studies, in addition to a bachelor of social work degree.

    USM is at the forefront in developing a national curriculum for the child advocacy studies minor. Courses are relevant to students studying any discipline that will ultimately lead to a profession that interacts with children and families such as criminal justice, education, human sciences, nursing, psychology, social work and sociology, among others. Graduates are well suited for jobs with government and social welfare agencies, impacting the lives of children in the communities they serve in Mississippi and across the country.
