Educational and Family studies
The department provides a Bachelor's program in Educational Sciences (including Clinical Child and Family Studies), and a university teacher education program for primary schools. Within our Master's program in Educational Sciences, three tracks are offered: Clinical Child and Family Studies: professional track, Clinical Child and Family Studies: research track, and Education and Innovation. More about our education.
Our research aims to advance our understanding of parenting and parent-child relationships within the family, of education, special education, child and family welfare, and long-term care for children and adults with a disability. We use knowledge from EFS itself, but also from psychology, neuroscience and social sciences. More about our research.
