Family and Child Studies
Welcome to Family and Child Studies!
We are part of the School of Human Ecology in the College of Applied and Natural Sciences at Louisiana Tech University.
Family and Child Studies is a program for students who have a passion for working with individuals and families.
Our students work in a variety of settings after they graduate including: early childhood education centers, hospitals, non-profit organizations, community agencies, and early intervention programs. They are also well-prepared for graduate school work in related fields.
Our faculty conduct research related to children’s early literacy, adult diabetes, e-health, technology, barriers to change, children’s social development, preventative health, and parenting.
Our program is committed to helping students enter their professional careers with a solid foundation in both academic knowledge and practical experience which enables them to be fully prepared to make a difference in the lives of individuals, families and communities.
