Family and Consumer Sciences
Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) education is a driving force in leadership and support to assist individuals, families and communities in making informed decisions about their well being, relationships and recourses to achieve optimal quality of life. FCS programs enable students to acquire broad, transferable skills for employment and personal life as well as job-specific skills in careers related to early childhood development, education, social and human services, food production and management, hospitality and tourism, apparel and interior design, and entrepreneurship.
All students face the challenge of living, working, and succeeding in a diverse, global society. As life becomes more complex, it is increasingly important to empower people to think critically and to take responsibility for their own lives and to respect the rights of others in the family, the workplace and the community.
