Objectives

The objectives of the Human Ecology Department reflect the overall objectives of the College. Human Ecology describes the interdisciplinary programs concerned with family well-being, human development and welfare, the human environment, and their interrelationships. An ecological perspective is contextual and focuses on reciprocal relationships between people and their environments, the development of human potential, and the formation of social goals. Graduates are prepared for careers in teaching, fashion, business, dietetics/nutrition, industry, and human services. Courses are designed to foster creativity, promote personal growth, develop reasoning and management skills, and integrate scholarly methods and research into both the clinical and academic experience. The Department encourages and facilitates the concept of life-long learning and professional commitment. Renovations completed in 2003 provide state of the art facilities.
