The mission of Southeastern's Family and Consumer Sciences program is to prepare students for professions which enhance and strengthen the well-being of individuals, families, and communities across the lifespan.

Today's FCS professionals practice in multiple settings. They are early childhood, elementary, secondary, university/college, and Extension educators, administrators and managers, human service professionals, researchers, community volunteers, business people, and consultants who address the issues most important to our quality of life.
