About

The graduate program in Family Relations and Human Development (PDF file) at University of Guelph take an interdisciplinary approach in the study of family dynamics and individual development within the context of the family across the life-span.

Overview

Students in the Family Relations and Human Development program from University of Guelph have many options for building an individualized program of study combining coursework and thesis research. 

Each student works closely with an advisory committee to select courses that not only provide for interdisciplinary breadth but also address the student's specific research and professional goals.

Features 

  • Building on core theory and methodology courses, students choose from professional and applied courses such as social policy, evidence based practice, assessment, and program evaluation. 

Careers in Research

The primary goal of the graduate programs in Family Relations and Human Development for those students who wish to pursue a career in research and scholarship is to develop skills in generating and evaluating new knowledge through research. Students graduating from the MSc program with this interest would generally seek to continue their studies at the doctoral level or seek employment that would involve the application and evaluation of research in applied settings. Doctoral graduates would likely seek employment with academic or research settings.

Professional Careers

Those students who are primarily interested in a professional career in the delivery of program and services to children and their families will find a range of courses that complement their research training. The program provides a solid knowledge base for the development, operation and evaluation of programs for children and adolescents. While some graduates with these interests may elect to proceed to the doctoral program, others will seek employment in a direct service or supervisory capacity in government or in an agency in the community. Some will be employed as educators in community colleges. Doctoral graduates may seek employment in the private sector and with public agencies as policy advisors, researchers and educators.
