Child Development & Family Relations
       Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences Education
The family and consumer sciences (FACS) education program prepares individuals to teach in middle grades and high schools; to work with the Cooperative Extension Service or other educational agencies such as vocational education, workforce development programs, and career services; and to prepare graduate study. FACS majors gain technical and career skills in work-based efficiency with six career areas: community and family services, culinary arts and hospitality, early childhood education, family and consumer sciences advanced study, food science, human services work development, and interior design services. Students also learn about workplace applications and leadership skills necessary to advise student organizations. There is a severe shortage of FACS educators in North Carolina and the U.S., and jobs are plentiful.
