Family Studies

This minor is intended to deepen students’ understanding of the many ways in which every person both influences, and is influenced by, the system of relationships within their families. A practical, but in-depth, understanding of family dynamics, child development, and the resources for forging healthy relationships will help prepare students for the challenges of marriage and parenting.
