Family and consumer economics is the 186th most popular degree in America, with 1,301 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #187 Food Science, and narrowly lost to #185 Natural Resources Management and Policy.

The degree is offered at a total of 35 colleges across the nation, and is the 318th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 1% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that 96% of colleges offering family and consumer economics are public making it a very accessible field.

The southwest produces the most family and consumer economics graduates, largely led by Arizona State University-Tempe, while it’s the Pacific-12 Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Arizona ranks highest, with particular help from Arizona State University-Tempe and Arizona State University-Skysong.

All that being said, no individual school produces more family and consumer economics graduates than Southern Crescent Technical College, which graduated 196 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study family and consumer economics). More students studied family and consumer economics as a percentage of total students at University of Nebraska at Kearney than any other college.
