Research and Engagement
Graduate Students in the Applied Family Science programs have opportunities to engage in a program of cutting-edge research and engagement through practica, formal coursework, independent study, and graduate assistantships with faculty. In keeping with our innovative and interdisciplinary mission, the research possibilities here are extensive and diverse, and each year, students from the Applied Family Science program attend regional, national, and international conferences to present their work.
Currently, the work of the Applied Family Science graduate faculty and students generally covers the following domains:
Divorce, Separation, and Coparenting
Check out the Divorce Education Assessment Collaborative, headed by Drs. Anthony Ferraro and Mindy Markham.
Family Health and Well-Being across the Lifespan
Sexual and Relational Health
