About

The conceptual framework for the Ph.D. in Family and Child Studies is based on the link between the principles of ecology and systems theory with the study of families. 

Overview

The current interdisciplinary perspective in the Family and Child Studies program from The University of New Mexico assumes that family dynamics can best be understood within the multiple contexts in which they occur. 

With the exception of a 12-hour doctoral core, students plan an individualized program with their Committee on Studies that focuses on the area of Family Studies and which may include courses in the graduate unit as well as from other units.
