► Food Science ► Nutrition ► Health ► Textiles and Clothing ► Shelter and Housing ► Consumer Science ► Household Management ► Household Technology ► Institutional Hospitality ► Human Development ►Family studies ► Education ► Community Services, among others.
► Family & Consumer Sciences ► Food and Nutritional Science ► Community Studies ► Hygiene and Health ► Agricultural Extension ► Education & Vocational Training ► Life Sciences ► Facility Management ► Human Ecology ► Women Development ► Child Development ► Home Science
