Welcome to the
College of Health and Human Sciences
In a world focused on things, we focus first on PEOPLE.
At the College of Health and Human Sciences at Kansas State University, we focus first on people. From the innate need for clothing and shelter to physical exercise and proper nutrition, to mental well-being, our students have dedicated their education to bettering the lives of people.
We inspire and prepare passionate and caring individuals for a meaningful life, and a career that promotes human well-being in the areas of business, design, teacher education, human behavior, and health sciences. Home to the departments of Applied Human Sciences; Food, Nutrition, Dietetics and Health; Hospitality Management; Interior Design and Fashion Studies; Kinesiology; Personal Financial Planning; and the K-State Center on Aging, our programs will provide students with hands-on experience and the skills needed to make an impact in the lives of individuals, families and communities.
