Child and Family Studies

Child and Family Studies majors are students who desire to help children and families around the world. JBU graduates with a CFS degree work with families across the age span—with orphans, with those who have been sexually abused, with children with special needs, with refugees, with families in poverty, and with the elderly. Some work as children’s ministers or as social workers. Others, after attending graduate school, work as occupational therapists, play therapists, and marriage and family therapists. This blended major (drawing from both biblical and psychological foundations) prepares students for a wide range of careers working with hurting children and families in the public or private sector, both globally and domestically with faith-based and governmental agencies. CFS majors are making a tangible difference around the world.
