About the Program

The online Master's Degree program was developed in response to the need to increase the supply of FCS teachers, a need that has been documented by historical data showing dramatic declines in the number of FCS teacher preparation programs and the number of individuals completing these programs. The format of online courses allows distance education students the opportunity to take courses that fit into their work and home schedules. 

This program is designed for individuals who have a bachelor's degree in a family and consumer sciences (FCS) content specialization or a related area, and are seeking initial teaching certification/licensure in family and consumer sciences. Prior to admission, students will be required to develop a certification plan based on the standards of the state in which they want to be certified.
