Family and Consumer Sciences (M.S.)
The master’s degree in Family and Consumer Sciences creates opportunities for students to develop a deeper and applied understanding of family and human development theory, research methods, and program planning and evaluation. If so desired, the program specifically provides an emphasis option in Early Childhood Education/Child Development.
The master’s degree is designed to accommodate students who wish to attend graduate school full-time (blended — face-to-face and distance courses) and working professionals who require more flexibility (all distance courses). The program is also designed as a pathway for added endorsement in Family and Consumer Sciences Education. Students pursuing this added endorsement option have specific electives that are required.
