Family Science, B.S.
With a family science degree from the University of Nebraska at Kearney, students learn how individuals develop and change, and how family, community and society affect human development.
While earning their degree, Family Science majors acquire the skills to create safe, positive and productive atmospheres for children, adults and families to thrive and relate to each other in healthy ways. Students will also develop a respect for diversity in people and environments, and graduate prepared to work in areas that build individual and family strengths.
An important part of the Family Science curriculum is the internship experience. Students are required to work under supervision within an agency or program serving children and/or families for 120 hours. Many of these internships become first-time career placements.
