Family Communication (Certificate)

The certificate program in family communication, offered by the School of Social and Behavioral Sciences, focuses on issues affecting communication in the family. This is a valuable certificate for students planning to enter careers or graduate study in fields like psychology, counseling, family studies, social work, medicine or nursing, law, aging, pastoral care, human services, media or communication technology. It complements the current communication program by bringing together an array of courses that have implications for the family unit, such as courses in new media and health. Students also are encouraged to take courses in other disciplines that complement family-related communication courses.
