Family Studies Minor

Why choose a Family Studies minor at WSU?

Students who complete a Family Studies minor acquire knowledge and understanding of issues regarding children and their families, essential to the professional and personal development of all individuals contributing to society.

If you are majoring in another field with a concentration in children and families (i.e. social services, child welfare, etc.), the family studies minor adds depth to your course of study and reinforces an understanding of complex family dynamics.

What are the grade requirements?

You must maintain an overall GPA of 2.00 or "C" in courses used toward the minor.

What are the credit hour requirements?

A minimum of 18 credit hours is required. At least 6 credits must be upper division (courses numbered 3000 and above). The Child and Family Studies Department will only accept 2 transfer courses for the minor.

How do I declare a Family Studies minor?

You must declare the minor with the department advisor, located in the McKay Education building, Room 248.
