Local Businesses, Agencies and Non-Profits by Program Emphasis

A Bachelor’s Degree in Family Studies equips you with a broad sets of skills, such as communication, research, and critical thinking that can be applied in a diverse range of careers. In contrast, other majors (e.g. Education, Computer Science, or Culinary Arts) offer professional preparation for a specific job or set of jobs – i.e., Education majors are training to become teachers. The great thing about a UVU Family Studies degree is that it provides many options, even ones you may not have considered yet. The challenge is that it may seem overwhelming because you have so many possibilities—or in other words, “death by choices.”

What students must consider is that UVU Family Studies students have the responsibility of making decisions early about what types of careers or graduate programs they will want to pursue. Then, they can plan their education accordingly with the help of their advisor, the UVU Career Development Center and Internship Services Office. To be competitive, you will not only need a degree, but also experience in the field, either through a paid job, an internship, or volunteering. Students who begin early seeking relevant educational and applied experiences will most likely have an advantage in creating a competitive profile for the job market or graduate school. Early experiences will give you a foot in the door to viable employment options since you are already known to a potential employer.

The following are local employers on the Utah Wasatch Front that are listed by emphasis. Most of these also offer internships.
