College of Health and Human Sciences
Making a difference in the lives of young people is what Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) Education is all about. Family and consumer sciences educators help young people become independent, assume family and community roles, and succeed in the workplace. The Family and Consumer Sciences Education curriculum prepares students to be professional educators in areas related to individual and family life. Students take a wide variety of courses in human development, nutrition, textiles and fashion, personal finance, and other areas. Students also gain hands-on experience though field placements in schools and community agencies. The culminating capstone experience in this major is a semester of full-time student teaching in a middle school and a high school.
