Child and Family Studies (B.S.)

Department of Child & Family Studies

A major focus in our undergraduate curriculum is the linkages that children and families have with peers, schools, community agencies, sources of social policy, and varied cultural contexts. Important features include the internships and field placements we provide that allow students to apply knowledge in career-related settings.

There are three options for completing the CFS major. Students may follow the Community Outreach track or select one of two teacher licensure tracks: Early Childhood Education Teacher Licensure at the PreK–3 level, or Early Development and Learning Teacher Licensure at the PreK–K level.
