Family and Consumer Sciences (B.S.)

Department of Family & Consumer Sciences

Our mission is to enhance the physical, social, and economic well-being of individuals, families, and communities, em­phasizing healthy and sustainable living across the lifespan. We fulfill our mission through instructional, research, and outreach/extension efforts that challenge, motivate, and inspire.

Family and Consumer Sciences integrates the fundamental components of human life — food, shelter, clothing, human relationships, and family — with larger societal systems. Through programs in textiles, apparel and design; food and nutrition; and human development and family sciences, our department prepares learners to meet the opportunities and challenges of today’s complex world.
