Applied Family Science

Kansas State University's Applied Family Science graduate degree programs combine education, research, and outreach to better understand and enhance the lives of individuals and families across the world.

We focus on family processes and relationships within diverse family contexts. Our Applied Family Science program brings together expertise from both research and Extension faculty who engage in high-impact basic and applied research addressing issues and needs relevant to family and relationship health and well-being.

We value diversity and inclusion, and use the Kansas State University Principles of Community and the College of Health and Human Sciences Principles of Conduct to guide and inform our practice.

We are proud to offer a Master of Science and PhD specialization from the School of Family Studies and Human Services in the College of Health and Human Sciences at K-State. We welcome you to apply and become a part of the K-State Family!
