SRJC-Cosumer & Family Studies
Consumer & Family Studies


The CFS Department offers a variety of courses in several different areas of study: Consumer Issues, Dietetic Technology, Fashion Studies, Floristry, Foods and Nutrition, and Interior Design.

Study in these areas can be both personally and professionally valuable. Comprehensive vocational certificate programs are offered for Dietetic Technology, Fashion Studies, Floristry, and Interior Design. Community professionals in each discipline serve on Advisory Committees to keep course offerings applicable to current industry standards and to help ensure that students completing a certificate are ready for job placement.

Faculty and staff in Consumer and Family Studies come from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds. We share an innovative approach to our work and offer a collaboration of work experience, academic expertise, and enjoyment of learning to students of all ages and backgrounds.
