About the Human Sciences Education and Training Graduate Certificate
The Graduate Certificate Program for Human Sciences Education and Training is designed for current and future graduate students in Human Sciences and Family and Consumer Sciences Education who want to enhance their knowledge, skillsets, and employment possibilities by adding expertise in education and training. The Human Sciences Education and Training Certificate incorporates a comprehensive understanding of the Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) Body of Knowledge, a framework that serves as the foundation for the FCS profession and addresses basic human needs, as well as critical perennial/emerging societal issues relevant to the well-being of individuals, families, consumers, and communities. The Human Sciences Education and Training Graduate Certificate program offers 15 hours (minimum) of online courses with the intent to expose students to FCS-related theories and how to apply theoretical frameworks to education and training programs. Graduate students may substitute one or more courses if they have taken similar courses in another program. Through focused coursework, it will empower graduate students to become “change agents” as future instructors or corporate industry trainers in Human Sciences.
