Student Reviews

Weber State was great.
Clarissa Torgeson rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really enjoyed my program, I have learned lots of useful information about family systems, child development, and how these concepts differ depending on the individual's ethnic background. I think that I would have had a better experience if I had more options when it came to possible courses.
