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.
