This program emphasizes individual, relational, and family development and processes over the lifecourse. Courses are interdiciplinary in nature and cover research-based knowledge on topics such as parent-child relations, dating and marital relations, human sexuality, lifespan human development, family conflict and violence, adolescent development, aging, family processes, prevention and intervention, and managing family resources.

Program Director: Amy Kostelic, Ph.D.

CEF: Consumer Economics and Family Financial Counseling


This program empowers students to address consumer and financial issues that impact family economic well-being. Through coursework, hands-on experiences, and internship placements, students will develop a comprehensive understanding of financial literacy, money management, consumer behavior, and financial counseling practices.

Program Director: Bruce Ross, Ph.D.

Graduates of either program are prepared for entry-level career positions in a wide assortment of helping organizations and agencies. Examples of the types of careers that await graduates of our programs can be found on the careers page.
