Department of Home Science

About Department

The Home Science Department is one of the important units of the Children’s University reflecting the vision and mission of the university. The department is an integral part of the school of nutrition and health. The department has been functioning since 2018 with an aim to nurture the students and help them transform into competent professionals in the field of food and nutrition. The department believes in all-round development of its students by providing them quality academic, research and field exposure; and arranges various academic, research and the extension activities accordingly. Home Science is vast and varied. Its scope extends far beyond the ‘home’ and is not limited to cooking, laundry, needlework, and home decoration. In fact, it is the only subject which prepares young learners for the two most important goals in their lives - looking after their home and family and preparing for a career or vocation in life. The department is currently offering M.Sc. (Foods and Nutrition), PG Diploma in Dietetics and Ph.D. (Home Science) courses. All these courses are designed in such a way that they align with all the requirements of the government and private sectors institutions working in the areas of food - nutrition and health.
