PhD in Family Science and Human Development

Montclair State University

Family Science and Human Development (formerly known as Family and Child Studies) is an interdisciplinary field that teaches you how to understand individuals, families and communities from a holistic point of view with an emphasis on social justice. We provide our students with hands-on, real-life experiences through internships and fieldwork. As a discipline, we focus on understanding people and families in their homes, schools and communities, rather than laboratories. Our graduates go on to have fulfilling careers supporting children and families where and when they need it the most.

The PhD in Family Science and Human Development is a forty-eight credit program.
