Department of Marriage and Family Studies

The mission of the Department of Marriage and Family Studies is to equip students to strengthen family relationships and solve personal and relational problems through child and family services or therapeutic intervention while cultivating Christian leadership and character in each student. Our students examine how humans interact in relationships as families, groups, communities, cultures and society as a whole. They use this understanding to help and to serve.

ACU's faculty of Christian scholars and professionals are the foundation for student success. Each faculty member is an expert in their field, and at building supportive relationships with ACU students.
