The curriculum leading to a major in Family and Consumer Studies is designed primarily for preparation in broad areas of the field. Electives may be used to build strong combinations with other fields of interest. A major in Family and Consumer Studies requires the selection of one concentration from the two available plus one minor outside the field of human sciences.

The concentration in Child Development and Family Studies is a nationally approved program that offers preparation for a student to become a Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE). Completion of this program leads to career opportunities with family life education, social service agencies, day care programs (care giving and administration), crisis intervention programs, and senior citizen services; in business as consultants; in medical settings as child life specialists; and as advocates for children and families.
