Tuesday, October 27, 2009
The School of Family Studies and Human Services and the Division of Continuing Education offer a new bachelor's degree completion program in family studies and human services online beginning this fall.
The program allows students to choose classes from a variety of disciplines so they can develop a well-rounded background in human development,
"In addition to the required course work, we offer a large number of elective courses, enabling students to choose among several different areas of emphasis to develop their own unique area of specialization, including early childhood, youth and gerontology," said Mary DeLuccie, professor of family studies and human services.
The degree will provide students with the knowledge of human development and how it relates to the family. Students also will learn about programs and services that are beneficial in raising the quality of life for individuals and families.
Graduates have a wide field for employment: youth programs, family and community service programs, residential programs, the judicial system, cooperative extension, higher education, elder care facilities and public health programs.
To be eligible for the program, students must have completed at least 30 credit hours of college course work.
More information about the family studies and human services bachelor's degree completion program and complete application information are available on the K-State Division for Continuing Education web site.
