Jessica Garate Student Success Story

"Upon graduation I went into the field and worked in early child education, and I was there for 8 1/2 years. I wanted something challenging and something that got me back into working with military families."

— Jessica Garate '16

The degree is uniquely concerned with understanding families and the development, evaluation, and management of program services to them in community context. The program is designed to create better online educational opportunities for family and community science professionals such as Extension agents and for spouses in military service families. The M.S. degree in Family and Community Services will prepare graduates for individual and family services professions that are similar to some positions in social work but distinct from counseling positions. The degree does not lead to licensure.

The program is offered through the Great Plains Interactive Distance Education Alliance (Great Plains IDEA).


Kansas State University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

The family and community services master's degree is offered through the School of Family Studies and Human Services in the K-State College of Health and Human Sciences.
