FCSE Masters/Endorsement Program

The Family and Consumer Sciences Education graduate program is part of a consortium of universities that are connected through the Great Plains Interactive Distance Education Alliance (GPIDEA).

While CWU is your home university where you will apply, register for courses and receive your diploma, you will benefit from the diverse perspectives and unique strengths brought by classmates and expert faculty at partner universities.

As a student in CWU’s Family and Consumer Sciences Education graduate program, you will achieve your personal and professional goals through convenient, flexible, high-quality coursework you can complete anytime, anywhere. You will learn from expert faculty who bring real-life experience to the coursework and are committed to helping you transition your learning beyond the online classroom into your career.


There are three pathway options within the Family and Consumer Sciences Education Graduate Program and each results in a different outcome. Students can earn a master's degree, their initial teacher certification, or an endorsement in FCSE. Use the flow chart below to determine which option is best for you.
