    Course Content

    Students must complete 120 credit hours to graduate. A sample of professional courses includes:
    • Introduction to Human Development
    • Family Relationships and Gender Roles
    • Introduction to Human Sexuality
    • The Helping Relationship
    • Family and Consumer Economics
    • Families and Diversity
    • Working with Parents

    Students who choose family studies and human services will have the option to select an area of concentration or complete an internship. The internship option includes a series of courses taken in the senior year that applies course content to the reality of working with people. The first course in the series is a one-credit class focusing on building a professional identity through in-class activities, personal reflection and volunteering within the community.

    During the next and final semester, these students serve a 320-hour internship. Students have regular contact with both a campus and a site supervisor. The internship is taken simultaneously with a capstone course in which students integrate the knowledge they have built throughout their undergraduate course work with their current internship experiences.

    Students who choose the non-internship option are expected to identify an area of concentration
    in which they will take at least 9 credit hours. Examples of concentration include psychology, sociology, gerontology, social work, or women’s studies. This provides the necessary training and information to work with a particular topic or population after graduation.


    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
