Focusing on children, youth, education, parenting and care

Educational and Family studies

Educational and Family Studies provides study programs in Educational Sciences and Clinical Child and Family Studies. With our research we promote understanding of parenting, children’s development, education and care, and we work on evidence-based interventions in those areas.



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.
