Research in Family and Consumer Sciences

Welcome to the Ryan Library Research Guide for FCS 250: Introduction to Research in Family and Consumer Sciences.


Choose a nutrition research topic and write an introduction and a literature review outlining past studies. The introduction should include background information like definitions and important principles related to your topic. The literature review will summarize the studies that relate to your research topic. Look for similar findings, different findings, and unanswered questions in the existing research.
