Family and Consumer Sciences

If you want to pursue a career helping people in many ways – from caring for children and families, to making the most of their leisure time, to building a wardrobe – the College of Family and Consumer Sciences has programs for you. We offer bachelor degrees in human development and family sciences, hospitality and tourism management and fashion merchandising, and graduate degree programs in applied human development and family sciences, marriage and family therapy and leadership in aging studies.

You’ll learn from expert faculty in both the classroom and at unique on-campus facilities to give you relevant work experience. These include a student-run restaurant, a couple and family therapy clinic, a child development lab and a catering service.
