Department of Consumer Science


The Consumer Science major focuses on improving the quality of life for consumers. This is ac-complished through recognizing the importance of roles that individual and household consumers play in the market economy. Through our program, students are trained to understand the con-sumer decision-making process and rational and effective resource acquisition and management strategies. Students also gain a foundation to provide diverse solutions for problems encountered by consumers in the market.

The Department of Consumer Science offers both master’s and doctoral programs that can prepare students to significantly and positively impact the consumers within our global economy.

After completing our program, graduates are prepared to assume leadership roles in either gov-ernmental or private sectors, including corporate planning, advertising, marketing and consumer affairs. Others pursue employment in media, such as newspaper and broadcasting companies, or research institutions.
