- Department Introduction
Since its establishment as the Department of Home Economics in the College of Science and Engineering in 1971, the Department of Home Economics Education has produced numerous social leaders and middle school teachers in various fields related to life sciences. Based on the philosophy of home economics education, our department provides opportunities to obtain professional knowledge in the fields of home economics, including child and family studies, family resource management, clothing and textiles, food and nutrition, housing, and home economics education. In addition, our department helps students develop the skills needed to solve the problems of family life practically and independently through a systematic and critical scientific approach. We also strive to improve the quality of human life by proposing ideal norms of family life and culture. By providing professional education in home economics, teaching techniques, and education methods, our department cultivates the basic virtues and qualities required for educators.
