Working with Military Families (Certificate)
Important complexities surround the dynamics of military families. Military personnel, veterans and their families face unique issues and challenges such as navigating military culture and dealing with multiple deployments, trauma and death. Students interested in careers focusing on these families have a need to understand normative family processes, stress and coping, and military culture and leadership.
Students enrolled in the program, offered by the Reserve Officer Training Corps and the T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics, will take a unique combination of courses as well as military leadership. Students who complete the certificate program will be conversant with human development, marital and familial relationships, and family dynamics in the context of military culture.
