We partnered with world-renowned psychologist, author, radio show host, and family expert Dr. James C. Dobson to create the Liberty University James C. Dobson Center for Child Development, Marriage, and Family Studies.

The Center for Child Development, Marriage, and Family Studies’ goal is to equip men and women with the knowledge and training they need to influence families and society for Christ through an online master’s degree or bachelor’s degree minor. No matter where you are in your educational journey, these online degrees can strengthen your faith and grow your knowledge in the area of family advocacy.
