Western Kentucky University
We offer three concentration areas: Child Studies, Family & Consumer Sciences Education, and Family Studies. The central purpose of the Child Studies concentration is to prepare students who are interested in working with young children. The central purpose of the Family & Consumer Sciences Education program is to prepare graduates who can successfully assume the positions of family and consumer sciences educators in middle and secondary schools. Graduates will have a broad family and consumer sciences knowledge base as well as the ability to teach others how to use this information to improve personal and family life. The central purpose of the Family Studies program is to prepare students who are interested in working in a family-focused environment. The graduates will have a broad knowledge base working with children and families. The major will provide graduates with entry-level competencies for child and family life.
