The School of Human Ecology offers an undergraduate major in Family and Child Studies, with concentration areas in Family Studies, Child Life, and Applied Child Development. The Family Science Curriculum is an approved program with the National Council on Family Relations for provisional certification as Certified Family Life Educators. A Master of Science is also offered in Family and Consumer Sciences with a concentration in Family and Child Studies. We are a small unit with 13 full time graduate faculty, five of whom focus on family and child studies. Our family studies M.S. program emphasizes application of skill in the profession. Many of our students are part time, thus full time students have strong chances of receiving financial aid in the form of scholarships and assistantships. Our faculty members are personable and encourage student professional development.
