Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) Education addresses the needs of individuals,
families, and consumers by focusing on relationships, personal development, personal
finance management, parenting, child development, interior and fashion design, nutrition
and work and family balance.
Why family and consumer sciences education at OSU?
FACS teachers positively impact the lives of individuals, the health of families,
and the welfare of society. FACS teachers are employed in middle, junior high and
high schools and serve as advisers to the Family Career and Community Leaders of America
(FCCLA) student organization. County Extension Educators deliver FACS education in
informal settings through the Cooperative Extension Service.
