What Our Alumni Say:

Madelene Gwaltney

"I decided to pursue Family and Child Development at Liberty University because I was hoping for a great liberal arts college that also focused on Jesus. I wanted a university that would give me a well-rounded faith as well as a well-rounded education."

Morgan Zuck

"All the professors in this department are great. Since we are a small department, they really get to know the students, and they all have experience in their field. I got to know my professors pretty well. They remember all of their student's names, and they enjoy getting involved in their students lives."

Karis Hicks

"I love the topics of Family and Consumer Sciences, and I had no idea that FACS and teaching could go together at Liberty. I never had a professor who didn’t care. Even more than they realize it, that impacted me to make sure I’m extending mercy, grace, patience, and love to my (own) students. Their love and care for me as a college student helped me become a better teacher."
