The Child and Family Studies major produces well-qualified graduates interested in working with organizations for the betterment of children and families in their communities. The major allows students who are interested in working with children and families to gain knowledge and experiences conducive to future employment in many private and public organizations with a vision of improving life for all citizens. Although the major is housed within the Education Department, graduates of the major do not complete the requirements for state teacher certification upon graduation. The degree completion program has different admission requirements but the same major requirements as the Child and Family Studies program.
