Welcome From Department Head

Welcome to the Family and Consumer Sciences website. Our department is a diverse and exciting one that I have been proud to be a part of for 20 years and counting! It is our hope that you may also choose to join us as we engage in teaching and scholarship activities to better the lives of families in New Mexico and across the globe.

I hope that you will spend some time here learning about our five majors:

  • Clothing, Textiles and Fashion Merchandising
  • Family and Child Sciences
  • Family and Consumer Education
  • Human Nutrition and Dietetic Sciences
  • Food Science and Technology.

Through the efforts of our outstanding faculty and staff, we offer bachelors and masters degree programs in each of these areas to suit the broad needs of students.

If you need more information, please feel free to contact us at

Thank you for your interest in the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences!

Esther L. Devall, Department Head
