The Child and Family Studies program at Baylor University focuses on a contextual understanding of families and individuals in a diverse and ever-changing world. Students acquire broad knowledge in the study of individuals, families, and relationships. Child and Family Studies students go beyond the classroom to get hands-on experience.
