Family Studies Specialization

The graduate specialization in Family Studies aims to prepare students to work in Family and Social Service agencies.  The Family Studies specialization seeks to train students to be effective leaders in these organizations by providing training in conflict management, professional development, and program administration.  Students in the Family Studies Specialization will have multiple opportunities for service learning through collaborative research projects, program design, and a supervised internship.

The Family Studies specialization is a 45-47 hour program.  Students typically begin in the Summer term, and will complete the degree after the following Summer.  Students may, however, begin the program during any quarter after they have completed an undergraduate degree and been accepted into the program.
