Family and Consumer Sciences

Improve the quality of life for families and individuals.

The family and consumer sciences major is designed for students who are entering careers that call for a broad knowledge of all family and consumer sciences areas, which include child development, fashion merchandising and design, food and nutrition, and interior design. If a student combines the family and consumer sciences (FCS) major requirements with those for secondary licensure, she is qualified to teach 7–12 family and consumer sciences.

Students who complete the major without licensure can work in a variety of careers including Cooperative Extension Service, event planning, consumer services, product and equipment promotion and government agencies. During the junior or senior year, students explore various career opportunities and have a supervised internship.
