The Master of Science in FYCS offers two degree options—a thesis and a non-thesis. Both options prepare students for advanced professional positions. FYCS students in either option may complete the FYCS Concentration in Nonprofit Leadership, the Certificate in Nonprofit Organizational Leadership, or the Certificate in Personal & Family Financial Planning. All FYCS graduate degree programs are available as traditional classroom programs or online through the Distance Education program.
