Family Studies incorporates a number of topics such as: Child Development, Nutrition, Fashion, Human Behaviour, Housing and Interior Design.
All of the areas above have corresponding Cooperative Learning opportunities associated with them.
Students take these courses to enhance their knowledge through experiential learning. Practical skills are learned through hands-on activities, for example Food Labs, Sewing Labs, and practicums at local elementary schools. Taking courses in these areas lead to a wide variety of careers. Click here to view the Family Studies Course Offerings 2017.
