Professor Elizabeth Haley, Dean

The College of Human Sciences offers graduate programs leading to the following degrees:

Doctor of Philosophy with majors in Environmental Design and Consumer Economics; Food and Nutrition; Family and Consumer Sciences Education; Human Development and Family Studies; and Marriage and Family Therapy.

The interdisciplinary doctoral program represents the cooperative efforts of the three departments within the college and draws upon related disciplines in the other colleges and schools of the University. The program consists of (1) a core requirement of at least 15 semester hours (including interdepartmental human sciences courses and a research collateral), (2) an area specialization of at least 15 hours, (3) a collateral of at least 12 hours, and (4) a dissertation based on original research. Applicants must have the master's degree or its equivalent. Master's degree work may, upon evaluation, be considered as a part of the requirements for the doctoral degree. Degree requirements vary depending on the academic background of the student and the area of specialization chosen.

Persons interested in graduate programs should consult earlier sections of this catalog for information concerning University requirements for master's and doctoral degrees.
