Family Life Education

Students studying Family Life Education typically have a genuine care and concern for individuals and families and are interested in how families can function more effectively.

Students expand their understanding of how families work, the inter-relationship of the family and society, human growth and development throughout the life span, the physiological and psychological aspects of human sexuality, the impact of money and time management, the value of education for parenting, the effects of policy and legislation on families, ethical considerations in professional conduct, and how to teach sensitive personal issues.

Students benefit from one-on-one relationships with highly skilled faculty who ensure development of critical thinking skills necessary to enrich and improve the quality of life for individuals and families. Concordia's location in one of the most culturally diverse cities in the nation allows students access to learning opportunities and internships that help them understand and interact with individuals and families from various cultural backgrounds.

Completion of the Family Life Education major at Concordia leads to provisional certification as a Certified Family Life Educator by the National Council on Family Relations.
