With such transferable skills, our students become highly marketable to employers of many disciplines, thereby enabling our students to pursue a passion rather than a job title. Dr. Hamon and Dr. Boyd-Soisson have co-authored an article elaborating upon the idea of transferable skills and marketability that is both practical and specific to the family science discipline.
