dc.description.abstract Students from many different majors are subject to both positive and negative stereotypes. Students of the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences at Ball State University are no different in this respect. Following several unfortunate, negative experiences and conversations regarding my major (Family and Consumer Sciences), I became motivated to promote exactly what graduates in this area are capable of doing. In order to do this, I created a PowerPoint presentation that included information about each major in Family and Consumer Sciences. It provides audiences with information such as careers available in each major, classes required of each major, and a voice-over of a student's perspective. I made this presentation available to college students and high school students in Ohio. Along with the PowerPoint presentation I created documents with basic information about each major and websites that interested students could explore. The presentation and documents will be used by the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences in the future to further students' knowledge about each major.
