Human Ecology (B.S.)
Human Ecology is the study of the relationship between individuals, families and communities and the environments in which they live. The field represents many content areas, including: child development and family relations; child life; food, nutrition and dietetics; family and consumer sciences education; housing and design; and merchandising and design.
Students learn, through theory and practice, how to provide a better quality of life for individuals throughout the life span. Students majoring in Human Ecology at Tennessee Tech receive practical experience in professional settings such as practicum, field experiences, and/or internships.
