From the Dean:

The College of Human Sciences encompasses fields of study that address the well-being of individuals, families, and communities. We focus on what is good for people--from healthy diet and exercise to satisfying personal relationships to sustainable consumer products. Our programs of study prepare students to work and succeed in the global environment of the 21st century. The programs are located in one of three departments:

 Family and Child Sciences
 Nutrition, Food and Exercise Sciences
 Retail, Merchandising and Product Development

For over 100 years the College has long been known for providing a nurturing environment for students, and we like to say that "We don't enroll students, we enroll families." This emphasizes the connection we feel with students and their families both during their study with us, and when they become alumni.

With almost 3000 undergraduate majors and 200 graduate students, Human Sciences is the fourth largest college at FSU. Faculty are known nationally for research on relationships and families designed to inform public policy, the influence of diet and exercise on chronic disease and aging, consumers in the marketplace, and development of fashionable and functional apparel.
