FLORENCE, Ala. – Officials with the University of North Alabama Department of Sociology and Family Studies announced that a new master’s program has been added to the online curriculum.  The Master of Science program in Family Studies was approved by the Alabama Commission on Higher Education earlier this month.

The online program requires 33 hours of graduate work in the field and is designed to focus on the family as a social unit in its developmental, dynamic, comparative and structural aspects.  In addition, the program will also focus on the significance of the family as a system that impacts individuals in society.

Applications for the program are currently being reviewed for students interested in starting the program in the fall of 2014.  For more information: Dr. Amber Paulk, Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Sociology and Family Studies, at 256-765-4855 or apaulk@una.edu
