Family Life Education
The Family Life Education Concentration prepares students to provide educational programming to parents, couples, and families in settings such as domestic violence and homeless shelters, social services agencies, Head Start and Help Me Grow programs, faith-based organizations and military bases among others.
The program focuses on promoting healthy family development by teaching positive coping skills to individuals, couples, families and caregivers as a proactive approach to promote positive family development. Family Life Educators teach individuals and families effective communication skills, positive self-esteem, parenting skills and healthy interpersonal skills. This concentration leads to provisional Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE) from the National Council on Family Relations (NCFR). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics employment projection for 2008-2018 predicts a 47% growth in jobs for individual and family service providers.
