Degrees Offered:

Family and Community Education

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Teachers College has long recognized that the family is a fundamental educational institution. Those concerned with education can benefit from considering how education proceeds within families, and how families are linked with other educational institutions in the community schools, daycare centers, healthcare and social service agencies, the media, libraries and museums, and religious institutions. Values, attitudes, norms, self-concepts, and expectations are formed, sustained, and modified in families as different generations teach and learn from each other through observation, participation, and instruction.
