Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services

Department of Family, Consumer and Human Development

The MFHD is a practice-oriented, but nonclinical, master’s degree especially suitable for individuals already working or planning to work in the family or social service sectors, education, corrections, or related fields. The MFHD does not require a thesis. A new group of students is enrolled every two years in the distance-delivered program, and the group takes a prescribed set of courses.

Master's Course Requirements

The core substantive courses for the master’s degree are FCHD 6030 , FCHD 6050 , FCHD 6060 , and FCHD 6070 . Master’s students also complete course requirements under their chosen specialization in Marriage and Family Relationships, Marriage and Family Therapy, Consumer Sciences, Infancy and Childhood, Adolescence and Youth, or Adult Development and Aging. Elective courses and thesis topics are individualized with each student by faculty supervisory committees.
