Human Sciences Adds Another Department
The new Department of Community, Family and Addiction Services should continue college's success.
Written by Sydney O'Drobinak
Texas Tech University announced the new Department of Community, Family and Addiction Services (CFAS) within the College of Human Sciences.
Because of the significant growth of the CFAS undergraduate major during the past three years and the desire to expand the graduate program, the College of Human Sciences decided that creating a stand-alone department was the next step to ensure the college’s ongoing success.
The new department offers a CFAS undergraduate degree, the Addictive Disorders and Recovery Studies (ADRS) undergraduate minor and graduate certificate program, and a master’s and doctoral degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT).
The CFAS will be at the head of family and addictions research and unique academic offerings with 20 undergraduate courses and 27 graduate courses. It will provide a distinct identity and increase campus and community visibility for the programs within it.
The department will include the Texas Tech Family Therapy Clinic, which celebrates a strong tradition of training doctoral and master’s interns, while providing affordable, high quality therapeutic services to Lubbock and the surrounding community.
“We are excited to be the new departmental home for the CFAS, MFT and ADRS programs,” said Nichole Morelock, associate department chair. “We look forward to continuing the tradition of academic excellence exemplified by these programs.”
