Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher Education Major

Department: Family and Consumer Sciences
Major: Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher Education

This program offers an Accelerated Graduate Degree Program.

This major prepares students to teach family and consumer sciences courses at the middle and high school level. Family and consumer sciences teachers are in high demand in Michigan and across the country.

Students who are interested in teaching at a Career and Technical Center may also complete the work experience requirement to earn a Career and Technical Education (CTE) endorsement in Family and Consumer Sciences (CIP: 19.0000). The Michigan Department of Education requires 4,000 hours of recent and relevant work experience for a CTE endorsement. 3,000 of the 4,000 hours will be completed as part of the Family and Consumer Sciences Education major. The other 1,000 hours must be wage-earning experience in Family and Consumer Sciences areas and documented on a verification of work experience form.
