Students may enter the family studies program from any major—some majors will be especially complementary, such as: economics, history, politics, philosophy, psychology, & business.
“Since God's plan for marriage and the family touches men and women in the concreteness of their daily existence in specific social and cultural situations, the Church ought to apply herself to understanding the situations within which marriage and the family are lived today, in order to fulfill her task of serving.”
