Family & Consumer Sciences

Wellness and quality-of-life issues affect people whether they’re concerned about a health issue or the cleanliness of a vacation resort. These are the types of topics you discuss as an FCS student. Though the department’s majors are distinct, they all require creative problem-solving skills to help people enjoy their lives.

All majors give you hands-on experiences in the field, where you serve the community and learn from mentors. If you’re interested in health or nutrition, you can prepare for a career in the classroom, as a government health expert or as a nutrition counselor. If the fashion or hospitality industries excite you, you can explore career options in hotels, event planning, apparel design or business management.
