SCHOOL OF HUMAN ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES

Karla Hughes, Dean, 142 Rivers Building

CURRICULA

The mission of the School of Human Environmental Sciences is to improve the quality of life for individuals and families through education, research, and service.† The knowledge base of the field includes individual and family development through the life span, early childhood education, human nutrition and food, the management of food service and lodging operations, interior design, apparel, and textiles. The faculty members of the school are committed to educating students for professional practice; to conducting research on the conditions which influence the quality of life for individuals and families; and to extending the knowledge of human environmental sciences through service to the state of North Carolina and beyond.

The School of Human Environmental Sciences offers undergraduate study in the following fields: birth through kindergarten teacher education, child life, nutrition and dietetics, family and community services, hospitality management, interior design, and merchandising.

The School of Human Environmental Sciences offers baccalaureate and master's degree programs through three departments: apparel merchandising and interior design; child development and family relations; and nutrition and hospitality management. The interior design major is accredited by the Foundation for Interior Design Education Research (FIDER) and endorsed by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA).† The dietetics major is a Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) approved by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education (CADE) of the American Dietetic Association.† CADE is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation and the United States Department of Education.††The Department of Nutrition and Hospitality Management also offers a dietetic internship that is† accredited by CADE (See graduate catalog for details.).† Completion of an approved DPD and an accredited dietetic internship or other accredited/approved supervised experience program are required to become a registered dietitian (RD). The Department of Child Development and Family Relations offers course work in partial fulfillment of the Family Life Education Certification from the National Council on Family Relations, the Infant-Toddler and Family Specialist Certification from the NC Department of Human Resources, Child Life Certification from the Association for the Care of Children's Health, and birth-kindergarten teacher licensure from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. Teacher certification in family and consumer sciences is offered by the School of Education in cooperation with the School of Human Environmental Sciences. (See School of Education.)

Students completing the major and minor requirements within the School of Human Environmental Sciences may use human environmental sciences core courses to satisfy only one requirement.† A specific course may not be used to count toward the major and minor.

BACHELORíS AND ACCELERATED MBA PROGRAM

Students in the merchandising or hospitality management programs who also wish to complete an MBA with either an apparel and textile management option or a hospitality management option may elect to follow an accelerated program of study.† This program allows students to complete the requirements for the BS degree in four years and, if qualified, the MBA in two semesters plus summer study.† Interested students should consult with their adviser early in the undergraduate program regarding required courses, sequencing, and grade requirements.† (See Section 6, Undergraduate Studies, Bachelorís and Accelerated MBA Program.)
