Undergraduate minors in Family Social Science
Preparing students for the future
Focused on the fundamental building block of society – the family – a minor in family social science will deepen your understanding of today's complex family systems. You can choose from three specializations:
- Family & Community Engagement to work directly with families in community settings.
- Family Therapy that will prepare you for entry level clinical work, or for advanced study in marriage and family therapy, or a practitioner certificate, such as the parent education teaching license.
- Family Financial Studies to assist families with financial issues as a coach or counselor or other programs.
Basic course requirements include couple relationships, family systems, and diversity, as well as experiential learning that will give you the opportunity to apply new skills and knowledge in a supportive environment.
A minor in family social science from one of the top programs nationwide will complement any career path - from business to medicine, to law and public policy, to engineering and the sciences.
