Advising Updates


Marriage and family studies:

  • Program Update: The Marriage and Family Studies degree has changed in the Spring 2019 catalog year. See the catalog for an overview of the new degree structure. Students in this catalog year should complete the core courses first. Students will then choose one of the top three certificate options. either Advocacy, Human Services, or Parent and Family Education, to complete their bachelor’s degree (45 credits total).

    This new degree is stackable, meaning that certificates lead to an associate’s degree and then to a bachelor’s degree. This will allow students the opportunity to earn smaller degree components as they pursue a bachelor’s degree.

    This new degree model will be the same for both DAY and ONLINE students.

  • Course Update: COMM 352 is discontinued. B 374 is the approved substitute course.
  • 2017 and older catalog years: Three new course options have been added to the Major Emphasis Group 2 section of the Professional General Emphasis major requirements: SW 260 Introduction to Social Work, PSYCH 342 Abnormal Psychology, and FCS 101 Introduction to Family and Consumer Science.
