Family and Consumer Sciences Education Teacher Education Certification Preparation Programme

Texas Tech University's online Family and Consumer Sciences Education Certification Preparation Programme is administered through the Family and Consumer Sciences Distance Education Alliance. The FCS Alliance is a statewide inter-institutional system that cooperatively develops, offers and provides access to web-based distance education courses to prepare individuals for certification to teach Family and Consumer Sciences Education in Texas. The following universities are participating in the FCS Alliance as part of their teacher preparation program:

  • Lamar University
  • Sam Houston State University
  • Stephen F. Austin State University
  • Tarleton State University
  • Texas A&M University - Kingsville
  • Texas Southern University
  • Texas State University-San Marcos
  • Texas Tech University
  • Texas Woman's University

The FCS Alliance has the following purposes:

  • to take aggressive steps to reduce the teacher shortage for Family and Consumer Sciences Education,
  • to enhance existing campus-based teacher preparation programs by providing options to accommodate scheduling needs of campus-based students, customize courses reflecting content needs that are unique to teacher certification specializations, and offset in frequency of campus-based course offerings resulting from low enrollment, and
  • to allow individuals otherwise unable to obtain family and consumer sciences certification due to schedule and proximity constraints to pursue a certification plan including a compliment of content specialization and discipline-specific professional development courses available through web-based delivery distance arrangements cooperatively offered by participating institutions across the state.
