The minor in family studies allows students to learn about dating and mate selection, family financial management, family strengths, communication, conflict resolution, relationship enhancement, parenting, care giving for the elderly, domestic violence, chronic illness, divorce and family therapy. Family studies draws upon psychology, anthropology, sociology, history and economics; yet it has its own unique theoretical framework, ecological-systems theory. The American Psychological Association, the American Sociological Association, the American Bar Association, the National Education Association and the American Medical Association have divisions dedicated to families, parenting and close relationships. At Berry College, the minor attracts students from many majors across campus, including religion, literature, psychology, sociology, history, communication, business and early childhood education.

The minor will consist of 18 hours.
