Majors, Minors, and Certificate Programs AVAILABLE IN FACS
Some FACS majors are comprehensive, which means they have enough hours required for the major that a minor is not necessary. Other FACS majors have fewer hours included, so a minor is required. Information for all majors, minors, and certificate programs in FACS can be found at these links.
