Are you ministering to families on a daily basis? Have you done an FMS or FFS and want to deepen your knowledge & skills to work effectively with Families, yet you can’t leave your ministry for 3-5 months to do a UofN school?


With the Online Advanced Family Studies (AFS) you’ll dive deeper into topics like:

  • Genograms & Family Systems
  • Coaching/Mentoring skills
  • Parenting
  • Sexuality & Gender
  • Contemporary Family Issues

…but you’ll do this mostly from your home! All you need is a computer and a good internet connection!


This school will be run mostly online, ending with an onsite intensive. The opening days will be in July. The intensive is planned for June in the following year. The 12 modules will take place over the course of 12 months and require self-study, online teaching and Zoom small group meetings. The online modules will become available each month, starting September.


This school will be registered as 12 seminars with the Extension Studies Center. All modules combined could count towards the third level AFS school (FAM 351), building upon the existing Foundation for Family Studies. We expect you will do outreach and a practicum, details to be confirmed at a later stage. If you are interested in pursuing a degree in Family Studies, please indicate this when registering for this school, so we can discuss the requirements.


The tuition fee for the online part of the AFS is 490 euro. This excludes costs for books and other resources.
The intensive (planned for May/June) will cost 650 euro, including accommodation and meals.
