Family & Consumer Sciences courses focus on skills needed to successfully manage resources, not only as individuals, but as group members in the family, workplace, and community. The variety of courses offered help students develop skills in the areas of self-confidence, setting goals, developing values and making educated decisions. Living independently is going to be a reality for students at some point in the near future. Family & Consumer Sciences courses will prepare students for daily life challenges as well as give them the opportunity to express their creativity.

Family & Consumer Sciences offers college credit for select courses as noted through the College Career Pathways program partnership with the community colleges. In addition, Introduction to Individual & Family Development offers college credit through the UCONN Early College Experience program.
