Certificate in Family Life Education

The Sociology Program also offers a certificate program in Family Life Education. Participating students can earn certification as a Family Life Educator (CFLE), approved by the National Council on Family Relations (NCFR). Upon completion of an undergraduate degree—which includes 27 hours of prescribed coursework and three hours of field practice—a student may seek provisional certification approval through NCFR. This certificate is offered to both degree seeking students and others seeking professional/ personal advancement. Non-degree seeking students will be admitted to the University via established admission guidelines. The certificate is designed to prepare students to work in a wide variety of professional fields that promote healthy family functioning, such as community-based social services, early childhood education, faith-based organizations, family intervention, government and public policy, family and consumer resource services, and health care and family wellness.
