Child, Adult and Family Services

This concentration focuses on the nature of individual and family interactions; how individuals within the family contribute to and are shaped by family dynamics; and how the influences of school, peers, gender and poverty influence individual development and family functioning. By studying varied developmental pathways, including those involving stress and trauma, students have the opportunity to acquire the professional skills necessary to work with individuals, couples and families in a broad range of human services settings. These include human and social services agencies, as well as programs for children, adolescents and adults in all stages of life.
