Syracuse University faculty and current students will welcome potential graduate students interested in addiction studies, child and family studies, child and family health in the global community, marriage and family therapy, nutrition science and dietetics, and social work during the College of Human Ecology’s Spring Information Session on Saturday, Feb. 26, at 10 a.m. in Shemin Auditorium. Free parking is available.

Detailed information will be available on the certificate of advanced studies (CAS) in addiction studies and the new M.S. in child and family health in the global community. The addiction studies CAS is a 19-credit program designed to support working professionals and supplement undergraduate and/or graduate studies in fields such as child and family studies, counseling, education, law, nutrition, psychology, public health, public policy, sociology and social work, among others.

The 36-credit hour graduate program in child and family health in the global community offers students an in-depth and comprehensive understanding of the factors influencing the health and well-being of children and families in the context of the global community. The program will examine a broad spectrum of factors, including infectious and chronic diseases, genetics and disabilities that require families to interface with medical care providers, service agencies and policy decision makers in their communities.

Faculty and admissions staff will be available at the information session to meet with prospective students and provide information on academic programs, scholarships and housing. For more details about this event, and to RSVP for it, contact (315) 443-5555 or e-mail
