About this Program

The purpose of a Family Studies Certificate is two-fold. First, it offers students foundational coursework in preparation to transfer to a four-year college in the area of Family Studies. Second, it offers students a credential to find employment in areas associated with Family Studies: adoption, child advocacy, counseling, domestic abuse prevention, hotline services, hospice, immigrant family services, military family support, vocational rehabilitation, etc. (National Council on Family Relations) While not a required credential for students who work in these fields, it quickly communicates a relevant background to prospective employers. Students will gain knowledge from various fields of study.
