About the Family and Consumer Sciences Education Doctoral Program

The Doctor of Philosophy in Family and Consumer Sciences Education (FCSE) prepares individuals for faculty positions in higher education and other professional leadership roles. The Ph.D. requires a minimum of 60 semester hours, exclusive of dissertation. Admission to the FCSE doctoral program requires a master’s degree from an accredited institution.

The FCSE doctoral program can be completed either on the Lubbock campus or at a distance. Both options require students to attend a two-day, face-to-face orientation at the beginning of the program. Additionally, distance students are required to complete their degree candidacy qualification examination on campus and to defend their dissertations on campus.

The doctoral program includes a specialization in family and consumer sciences education (21 credits), a research component (15 credits), and other coursework designed to meet individual professional goals, including an 18-hour emphasis that meets the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools standard for coursework in a teaching discipline.
