Course info


The undergraduate Community Outreach track in Child and Family Studies is designed to be interdisciplinary in nature in order to accommodate the special interests and strengths of students, while also allowing for flexibility and individualization. Students design a program of study in consultation with their advisor that includes a core of required courses, a complement of specialty area courses supportive of individual interests, and a 12-hour practicum that will complete their program of study. All students graduating with a child and family studies major will have in-depth knowledge about children and families, a broad integrative perspective, and means for application to variety of fields and academic careers.

The focus of this track is on learning about families as social systems, with special attention to family processes, the changing structure of families, socioeconomic differences, ethnic-cultural differences, and families that are at risk and face stressful circumstances. This track provides preparation for working in a variety of social and community agencies that serve families and their members. Child and family studies is a good choice for students who are planning to pursue graduate work in family studies or closely related fields.

For students pursuing the community outreach track, progression is governed by acceptance for the practicum. The practicum is thus the gateway for the successful completion of the CFS major.
