Family and Consumer Sciences
Family and Consumer Science (FACS) programs and courses are designed to empower individuals and families throughout their lifespan to manage the challenges of living in a global society. FACS provides individuals with the practical knowledge and critical and creative thinking skills needed to address problems in diverse families, community, and work environments. These challenges include balancing personal, home, family and work lives.
Students will acquire marketable skills to be successful in life management, employment, and career development, promote optimal nutrition and wellness as well as manage resources to meet the material needs of individuals and families.
