FAMILY STUDIES (Social Sciences and Humanities)

Why take Family Studies?

Family Studies is an interdisciplinary subject area integrating social and physical sciences in the study of topics arising from daily life.  The curriculum is found in the Social Sciences and Humanities document which is concerned with how students view themselves, their families, their communities and society as they seek to find meaning in the world around them.   Family Studies includes the study of individual  and family development, relationships, parenting, decision making, resource management, food and nutrition, clothing and textiles, and health sciences.   Simply put, the Family Studies courses are about LIFE
