Child and Family Studies

The Tri-College Child and Family Studies (CFS) Consortium is an interdisciplinary group of faculty from many departments (e.g, Anthropology, Education, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, Comparative Literature, and Social Work) who share interests in children, families, schools, and social-cultural contexts. Within this broad framework, different disciplines focus inquiry into the biological, familial, socioeconomic, political, cultural, and educational dimensions of child and family well-being and the varying life courses and life chances of individuals.
