Family Science (B.A.)

Department of Psychology and Family Science

Majoring in Family Science involves the study of the way families work and how they can function more effectively. What is the value of education for parenting? What are the effects of policy and legislation on families? How can you teach about sensitive personal issues?

You’ll develop lifelong skills in scientific thinking and in understanding human thought, behavior and family interaction as you take 50 credit hours towards a Bachelor of Arts degree. Completion of the major leads to provisional certification as a Certified Family Life Educator by the National Council on Family Relations.
