Human Development & Family Studies (B.S.)

Department of Human Development & Family Studies

Students in the family studies concentration focus on how families function, develop, and change in response to the challenges of modern life. Course work covers the latest research and theories about romantic relationships, parenthood, divorce, life in single-parent and step-families, gender, and how families can learn to manage conflicts.

Positions taken by graduates of this concentration include family counselor, human resource specialist, caseworker, and family services coordinator; others have gone on to earn degrees in family law and marriage & family therapy using their family studies concentration as a strong foundation.
