A rapidly changing society has presented new and difficult challenges to family life. The programs in Child Development and Family Science prepare individuals with the knowledge, skills, and perspective they will need to work effectively with families and children to meet these challenges.
We offer undergraduate and graduate programs to prepare students to work with families and children in community, government, and medical settings.
For more information about any of the programs in the Child Development and Family Science, contact Dr. Amy Claridge.
