New Child Life Specialization in Family Studies

Beginning in Fall 2015, the Family Studies undergraduate degree will include two specializations: Family Science and Child Life.

Child Life Specialists are child development experts who help children and families cope during hospitalization. The Child Life specialization at CWU includes new courses on Child Life, Childhood Diseases and Disorders, Therapeutic Play, Attachment Theory and Practice, and Foundations of Marriage and Family Therapy. Graduates of the program will be prepared to pursue child life internships or to work with children and families in other contexts.

Check out the specialization website, and contact Dr. Amy Claridge for more information.
