Family and Consumer Studies (FCS) is an interdisciplinary department where faculty and students examine how the social, economic, political, and physical environments affect families, individuals, and consumers. The teaching, research, and service done in the Department focuses on expanding our understanding of how welfare of individuals, and the families in which they live, are affected by external forces and internal forces. As such, the Department Emphasizes applied social science research and teaching with a strong public policy orientation.
The FCS Faculty includes individuals trained in business education, demography, education, family economics, gerontology, human development and family studies, psychology, and sociology. This mix of backgrounds has helped the Department to cultivate an inter-disciplinary environment that influences faculty research and faculty services as well as our undergraduate and graduate programs.
