About

The Marriage, Family and Human Development Program centers on theories, research and practices related to optimal human development within the context of family life.

Overview

A graduate degree in MFHD will provide you with a broad-based understanding in family studies/science and human development. It provides a life-course perspective by which human development and family behavior can be understood and improved.

All the students take courses which contain both human development and family studies/science content. In addition our students are trained as social science researchers, obtaining a graduate level competency in research methods, statistical analysis, and professional writing. Our program is not a clinical degree that would prepare a student to practice in the mental health fields. MFHD is a research-focused academic degree which prepares graduates to be employed primarily as university faculty, in community agencies, or as professional researchers.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Advanced Statistics in Family Studies
  • The Individual and Family Over the Life Course
  • Workshop in Marriage, Family, and Human Development
  • Familial Influences on Children's Social Development
