People are interesting creatures, and people gathered together in families are even more interesting in terms of how they relate to and interact with one another. The family science concentration within the sociology bachelor’s degree exposes students to historical trends, current research, and emerging developments in how families are formed and function within diverse societal and cultural contexts around the globe.
Graduates with the degree in sociology/family and child studies find employment in hospitals, pediatric healthcare settings, human services roles with state agencies and non-profit organizations, and childhood education providers. Graduates help run programs that enhance childhood nutrition and development, provide after-school tutoring and mentoring, and offer foster care and adoption services.
This program is approved by the National Council on Family Relations and graduates are automatically eligible for the provisional credential of Certified Family Life Educator at graduation. Graduates are able to immediately apply for the credential without taking any additional exams since our program is already approved.
