Welcome to the College of Human Ecology
In a world focused on things, we focus first on PEOPLE.
It's an exciting time for the future of the College of Human Ecology. Last spring, some of our college faculty began exploring the idea of a new name for the college to better represent the academic majors, programs, departments and scholarly research that is housed within the college.
Effective June 1, 2019, the College of Human Ecology will become the College of Health and Human Sciences.
While the name is new, the college will still offer the same majors and programs as it always has with the same internationally recognized faculty through the School of Family Studies and Human Services and departments of Hospitality Management; Apparel, Textiles and Interior Design; Food, Nutrition, Dietetics and Health; and Kinesiology. Gerontology, our secondary major located in the K-State Center on Aging, will also remain as part of the college.
All of our majors and programs will continue to execute the mission of the college in discovering, disseminating and applying knowledge to meet basic human needs and improve the human condition.
If you are a prospective student or a parent of a prospective student, we invite you to visit us on campus and learn more about what our college is able to provide you.
