Welcome to Child and Family Studies, where you can receive the tools for working successfully with families and children.
Our Family Studies program has led the way for developing national standards for Family Life educators. Our Family Studies students receive a strong foundation for employment and/or graduate study. As a graduate, you will be eligible to apply for national certification as a provisional Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE).
Our Early Childhood/ Early Childhood Education programs will prepare you to teach preschool and/or kindergarten and primary grades. The Melba S. Lehner Children's School is nationally accredited and provides a setting where you will gain practical experiences with young children.
Our department's diverse faculty and staff are friendly and supportive, and we have a very active student organization. We invite you to view this movie and explore these pages for more information on our programs.
