Louisiana State University Program Receives CFLE Approval


The Bachelor of Science degree in child and family studies at Louisiana State University is the newest program to meet the criteria for the Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE) credential.

This program in the LSU School of Social Work integrates theory, research, and practice from multiple disciplines with a unique blend of liberal arts and professional education. The major focuses broadly on child development and family dynamics, with special emphases on parenting throughout childhood, couples in dating, marital, and cohabiting relationships, social and psychological development, interactions between family members, influences on child and family well-being, cultural variation among families, and practical application of knowledge about individuals and families.

Nearly 130 degree programs at university and colleges throughout the United States and Canada have been CFLE-approved by NCFR. Search the NCFR Degree Programs Guide.

NCFR, which administers the CFLE credential, recognizes regionally accredited schools offering undergraduate and graduate degree programs with course work that includes content covering the 10 Family Life Education content areas required for approval as a provisional CFLE. NCFR approval allows graduates of these programs the opportunity to apply for provisional CFLE certification without taking the CFLE exam.
