The Family Studies and Human Services department offers a Master of Science degree in Family Studies and Human Services with a specialization in Family Studies. The M.S. program in Family Studies provides students with a foundation of knowledge and skills in interdisciplinary social science related to family.
Students may specialize in the area of Family Life Education (focusing on the development and implementation of educational programs designed to enrich and enhance individual and family well being) or develop research skills to investigate family phenomena. Course work is tailored to the backgrounds and professional goals of each student, with emphasis on human development and family studies, and on program development and evaluation.
In planning the masters students program of study, we encourage a broad orientation, through experience and course work, to the various aspects of family studies, family life education, family resource management and professional issues. The students committee will work with him/her to develop course work and other professional experiences to provide both the recommended background and a specific focus most related to the students professional goals.

Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
Most graduate students are able to finance their education with a variety of financial assistance tools specific to graduate school:
* Graduate Assistantships: Funded by individual departments and graduate programs, teaching, research and graduate assistantships are awarded based on a student's ability and promise.
* Graduate Fellowships
* Loans: Loans are available to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have successfully applied for financial assistance
* Traineeships: Traineeships are offered through the university or departments that have federally supported traineeships.
