Department of Home Science

 

Overview of Home Science Courses

The traditional definition of home science is the study of subjects required for one to become a good home maker – taking care of the heath and welfare of people at home. However, it has now become a more inclusive subject covering lifestyle studies and applied technologies required for good living and better quality of life – at home as well as everywhere else

It is a field of multidisciplinary studies covering different facets of human life, which remain outside the purview of the regular arts, science and commerce curricula. The five different disciplines, which form integral part of the study of home science include the following:

  • Human Development & Childhood Studies
  • Food & Nutrition
  • Fabric & Apparel Science
  • Development Communication & Extension
  • Resource Management & Design Application

 It is also an interdisciplinary studies, making use of the three main domains of knowledge - namely physical sciences, life sciences and social sciences.
