Welcome to the Department of Child and Family Studies. We are a lively and vibrant department, offering three undergraduate tracks, two master’s degrees, and a doctorate.
Our ongoing academic and professional pursuits cover a wide variety of topics in child and family studies, such as community outreach, early childhood education, parenting, youth in political conflict, and nature-based play.
We believe the best way to learn is by experience, so the department offers many service-learning, study abroad, and experiential learning opportunities. Students will engage with world-renowned faculty and be able to work in partnership with organizations and institutions from around the world.
