Thinking beyond Consumption in Consumer Education

The open thesis topic for this project is to critically analyze consumer education curricula through curriculum analysis in order to gain a better understanding of how these curricula frame consumption. This research will analyze the extent to which current curricula primarily address learners as consumers and engage with alternative ways to satisfy needs beyond consumption. The student will examine the underlying assumptions, biases, and values present in current consumer education curricula by analyzing the curriculum materials. The results of this research will contribute to the ongoing dialogue about how to improve consumer education and promote alternative ways to satisfy needs beyond consumption.
