July 29, 2011

Writer: Writer: Scott Haycock

Brigham Young University-Idaho will offer a new Bachelor of Science degree in Marriage and Family Studies beginning in the 2011-12 academic year.

This new degree has been a minor in the Department of Home and Family since 2001. As the most popular minor in the department and due to a growing interest in this field, BYU-Idaho has now received approval from its Board of Trustees to offer it as four-year degree. Those studying Marriage and Family Studies will specialize in one of three areas: professional general, professional clinical, and home and family living.

"We are excited to offer this new degree. At BYU-Idaho we teach the importance of families, and we believe this degree will contribute to the strengthening of the family unit" said Bruce Kusch, associate academic vice president of curriculum.
