Family & Consumer Sciences Teacher Education

Welcome to Family and Consumer Sciences Education, where “Linking Learning to Life” is both our motto and our pledge.

 The Family and Consumer Sciences Education (FCSE) program at Queens College prepares individuals to become New York-certified family and consumer sciences teachers. The FCSE program provides individuals with knowledge and skills in a variety of family and consumer sciences content areas, and also supplies the professional education required to become competent and committed teachers of today’s adolescents in grades 5 through 12. Teaching FCS is a rewarding and challenging career. If you would like to learn more, continue reading to find out which program is right for you.

 If you are currently a student in high school or a community college, then the Bachelor of Arts program is right for you. Click here. 

Depending on your background, we offer two different FCSE graduate programs:
  • For individuals who hold a bachelor’s degree and are looking for a new career, we have a post-baccalaureate program. Click here.​
  • For New York-certified teachers who are looking to add a certification in FCS, the post-baccalaureate program is also appropriate. Click here​.
  • For FCS teachers who are looking to obtain professional certification in FCS, we have a graduate program that leads to a Master of Science in Education. Click here.​

All of our FCSE programs are registered with the New York State Education Department and, therefore, lead to either an initial or professional certificate required by the state to be a FCS teacher. The programs are also nationally accredited by the National Council of Accreditation in Teacher Education (NCATE), which means the programs meet a high standard of excellence in preparing candidates to become FCS teachers.
