B.Sc. (HOME SCIENCE) PROGRAMME

Home Science has contributed a great deal towards national development by training students to take up leadership roles in extension and community outreach programs. As a discipline Home Science integrates the ingredients of the sciences, social sciences and technology to facilitate the study of and enhance the quality of human life. Its approach is therefore inherently interdisciplinary. The education process in Home Science underscores the importance of the individual's dynamic relationship with his/her family, community and society as a whole, as well as with the resources in the environment.

Years of national and international experience in the field has contributed to the wisdom that all the five windows of opportunity that Home Science offers be opened i.e. food and Nutrition, Human Development and Child Studies, Development of Communication and Extension, Apparel and Fabric Science. In this course, the students will learn the fundamental principles and foundations of all the five areas. They are expected to internalize the principle of Home Scientist, that is, to give back to the community from which they draw for sustainable development. This is a major contribution of Home Science in both developed and developing societies.
