Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Master of Science in Family and Consumer Science Education

Format: Online

Program Description:

The College of Human Sciences is a member of the Great Plains Interactive Distance Education Alliance (GPIDEA), a consortium of primarily land grant universities that have come together to offer post-baccalaureate programs, through distance education, to students whose families or careers have prevented them from completing an on-campus degree. GPIDEA allows students to pursue a degree or certificate offered by a single institution or multiple institutions - although students are admitted at one institution, they may enroll in courses at multiple institutions at a standard tuition. There is a nationwide shortage of Family and Consumer Sciences teachers. This master's degree in Family Consumer Sciences Education will provide professional education courses (pedagogy) that could contribute to meeting the requirements for teacher certification. The program is a 36-41 credit hour post-baccalaureate program of study which will lead to a master's degree.


Texas Tech University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
