About

The Master of Science in Family, Youth, and Community Sciences delivered by University of Florida seeks to prepare students for careers in human services, youth professions, and community development in public, private, and nonprofit organizations.

Overview

Key facts:

  • There are two degree options: thesis and non-thesis project. The thesis option prepares students to conduct independent research needed to develop science-based solutions to problems, issues, and policies that affect families, youth, and communities. Students develop expertise in a subject matter area directly relevant to the problem or need they want to address with the thesis research. The Family, Youth, and Community Sciences program is offered at University of Florida.
  • The non-thesis project option provides the student with a broad base of knowledge and skills in the discipline. Projects vary in nature and may include program development and evaluation, improving aspects of organizational/community development, grant writing, or other empirically-based projects.
