Only in 2011 were family studies acknowledged as
a scientific discipline. However, as a field of study
it has had a longer history. Studying this discipline
at the Faculty of Theology of the University of
Silesia in Katowice is quite popular. The didactic
proposal includes undergraduate, graduate and
postgraduate studies. The process of teaching is
connected with an intensive scientific research.
The article shows both the history of family studies
in Katowice since 2009 and scientific activity
of the Department of Family Studies. The forthcoming
development perspectives of research and
didactic offer are presented as well.
