About the ProgramHDFS Ramona

The Child and Family Services program prepares students for careers that involve services and leadership to children, youth, adults and their families. The course content focuses on individual development, family dynamics and interaction, policy and law, family life education, and professional skills.  Students develop critical thinking skills, assessment and analytical skills and knowledge of human behavior across the lifespan. A professional internship experience
prepares students to compete in the job market effectively. Graduates have increasing career MFT        opportunities in urban areas and
  professional positions in government

  work, law school, and medical school
