Use research-based knowledge to serve families and the community.
Promoting the well being of the individual, the family and the community as a whole is the cornerstone of Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS).
When you study within this field at Ashland University, you focus on one of two disciplines: Child and Family Studies or Fashion Merchandising. Though very different from each other, the two programs all share a commitment to using research-based knowledge to educate the public and improve life for the families and communities served.
What you will enjoy about family and consumer sciences:
Undertaking your own research and service learning projects
Exciting internship opportunities
A study abroad option in Fashion Merchandising
The opportunity to know your professors well and work with them closely in a small classroom environment
Extensive experiential learning opportunities that build your professional confidence
