FCS has a wide-range of courses that cover our three concentration areas (Applied Child Development, Child Life, and Family Science).

We currently offer over 30 courses in topics related to Children, Families, Development, and Relationships. Each concentration requires a unique blend of these courses to effectively prepare students for their future career or graduate school goals.

There are several courses that all Family and Child Studies students take, regardless of concentration:

  • FCS 100: Marriage and Family Relations

Additionally, each concentration has flexibility with FCS, HEC, free, directed, and restricted elective openings.
