When families thrive, we all thrive

Families are foundational to our society. They are the cornerstone of our individual lives and critical to our “self-understanding.” It’s no secret that families face a constant barrage of challenges in our modern age. The world needs men and women who answer the call to help families thrive. How about a career in a field that allows you the incredible privilege of helping families cope with whatever life throws at them?

Program Overview

This master’s program focuses on how the family relates to society. With a strong emphasis on counseling skills, you’ll be given a great opportunity to bring Christian compassion and understanding to the challenges that face modern families. This program teaches you how to help parents, teachers, and students face the challenges that confront them. You’ll learn skills that will allow you to positively impact a child’s well-being and equip parents to navigate today’s culture.

What to Expect

While no family is perfect, every family is most definitely unique. The issues families face these days are incredibly diverse. This program will help you address them from a Christian perspective. You’ll learn how to nurture children by building self-esteem, and how to help create healthy environments where families can not only grow, but thrive. You’ll study the major issues facing families and educators, and the cultural background and biases that affect relationships. You’ll learn individual and group counseling techniques, as well as positive steps that educators and parents can take to counteract societal trends.
