The Education and Family Studies department at Snow College is designed to promote exploration and the development of career qualifications within the field of Family Consumer Science. Designed for majors and non-majors alike, everyone can benefit from our courses! We offer classes in nutrition and cooking, human development, sewing, personal and consumer finance, early childhood education, family relations, and more. Whether you choose to take just one or two classes for your own personal development or you decide to major in one of the many fields that fall under the Education and Family Studies umbrella, our professors are here to help you every step of the way. At Snow, we believe that hands-on learning is the key to student success. That's why our students spend time not only studying the textbooks, but actually putting those studies into action.
