Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher Licensure Program (B.S.)

This licensure program is for general human ecology students who plan to teach family and consumer sciences at the middle, junior high, senior high, or postsecondary levels. Family and consumer sciences educators directly address the needs of individuals and families related to nurturing relationships, parenting education, healthy lifestyles, and resource management. Graduates of the program work in middle and secondary schools, cooperative extension, business, and industry.

Upon successful completion of all family and consumer sciences licensure requirements, the Principles of Learning and Teaching test, and the PRAXIS II content assessment test for family and consumer sciences, graduates are eligible to apply for licensure to teach family and consumer sciences in Kansas schools. See the College of Education  section of this catalog for more information on eligibility requirements, admission to teacher education and admission to the professional semester. Inquiries should be directed to the Center for Student and Professional Services, 13 Bluemont Hall.
