Bachelor of Science in Human Sciences

The Bachelor of Science in Human Sciences is designed for students who wish to pursue multiple fields of study within the College of Human Sciences. It provides flexibility for students to explore specific areas of interest, work toward career goals, or prepare for graduate or professional study.

Students are required to select three areas of concentration, which are similar in content to a minor.

Each concentration consists of a minimum of 18 semester hours for a total of 54 minimum hours. Two concentrations must be in the College of Human Sciences and may be selected from addictive disorders and recovery studies; apparel design and manufacturing; community, family, and addiction services; human development and family studies; interior design; nutritional sciences; personal financial planning; restaurant, hotel, and institutional management; retail management; studies in personal finance, youth development, and family and consumer sciences extension education.

The concentrations in youth development and family and consumer sciences extension education can also be completed as a minor. The 18-hour minor in youth development provides a foundation in human development targeting developmental issues unique to adolescence. Students will learn to work with youth audiences, particularly in promoting comprehensive wellness and leadership development. The 18-hour family and consumer sciences extension education minor consists of extension-based program development and evaluation, including an internship. For information on other concentration areas listed above, see individual program sections of the catalog.

Students are also required to complete the core curriculum required by both the university and the College of Human Sciences for a total of 120 semester hours. For additional information about the requirements and course offerings, see an academic advisor in the College of Human Sciences.
