Family and Consumer Sciences

FCS Education

The Family and Consumer Sciences Education program prepares graduates to teach family and consumer sciences classes in public or private schools. The focus of these classes in schools today is on adult roles, life skills, consumer rights and responsibilities, and contributing to the community. Graduates who complete this major may also qualify to become extension educators or work for other public and private agencies.

Students enrolled in FCS Education must complete 1,500 clock hours of supervised work in family and consumer sciences while in this approved teacher education program in order to apply for the license of “Career and Technical Education: Family and Consumer Sciences” as a content area and be eligible to teach family and consumer sciences in the school setting listed on the license (Indiana State Board of Education; 511 IAC 15-6-5).
