North Carolina State University
The Department of Youth, Family, and Community Sciences at North Carolina State University offers graduate distance education programs designed to prepare and strengthen current and future professionals who work with youth and/or families in community-based settings.
Our graduate faculty members are field experts who strive to create positive and applied learning environments that prepare students to excel in their professional careers. We are student-focused, recognizing that our students bring talent and knowledge into the classroom. We encourage student development by building on their strengths and cultivating their unique career interests.
We offer a fully online graduate program, which allows our students the flexibility they need to be successful.
Our program is designed for both traditional and non-traditional students, incorporating synchronous and asynchronous learning options that provide students with opportunities to either focus on one foundational area within youth, family, or community sciences, or gain a broad perspective of working with individuals across the lifespan.
