FAMILY AND SOCIAL RELATIONS
The interdisciplinary degree programs in Family and Social Relations combine courses from a variety of academic perspectives whose focus is upon the family as a fundamental unit in society. The program is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the family including its various possible structures, the relationships within, and the nature of its interaction with other social institutions.
A background in Family and Social Relations has relevance to careers in law, teaching, social work, government service, family mediation, family court support services, and applied research in the areas of sexuality, child development, family violence, separation, divorce, and aging.
Students selecting a general degree in Family and Social Relations can, with appropriate course selection, be prepared for application to four-year Honours and then graduate programs in psychology, sociology, and related disciplines.
