Because our courses can change from time to time, it is important to keep in close contact with your advisor to learn about any alterations to your degree plan.

The Family & Consumer Sciences Education (FCSE) concentration is designed to prepare the graduate for certification as an FCS teacher, as well as employment in a variety of occupations that serve individuals, families and communities through education, government, business or human services.
