A minimum overall GPA of 2.00 must be maintained in order to continue in the Family Studies minor.
Upon acceptance into the minor, we recommend that students meet with an advisor from the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs Advising Center (895-1009). Students should meet with their advisor prior to each semester they are taking classes. The department has developed a schedule of when classes will be offered. Meeting with an advisor will ensure the student stays on track and can graduate in a timely manner.
The Family Studies minor provides students with basic theory in family studies and family therapy with particular attention to family systems theory, interpersonal dynamics, multi cultural issues, human sexuality, and couples and family therapy.
