Marriage and Family Studies

Marriages and families are microcosms of life itself

Healthy and happy families tend to produce persons who are able to enjoy their own lives and to contribute meaningfully to society. Our culture, however, struggles more and more with the difficulty of sustaining life-long commitments.

The B.A. degree in Marriage & Family Studies is a unique attempt to highlight the formation of students not only as future working professionals, but also as strong spouses and parents.

This is the only undergraduate program of its kind among Catholic colleges and universities in the USA!

As an ACCESS student, you have the opportunity to major, minor or to complete a certificate program in Marriage & Family Studies. This can be applied to your career in a variety of fields – social services, church ministries, counseling, etc.

How quickly can I earn my degree?

40 courses (120 credits) are required for graduation. But, did you know?

Please refer to the Undergraduate Catalog for a more detailed explanation of the specific degree requirements and course prerequisites.
