Undergraduate Studies

Family and Consumer Studies provides an interdisciplinary approach to those factors that influence the well-being of families, consumers, and communities. General areas of study and research include consumer studies and family economics, human development and family studies, environment and behavior, and Human Development and Social Policy.
