The Integrative Human Sciences degree offers a dynamic approach to studying the well-being of individuals, families and communities in a global environment. Our core curriculum provides students a foundation to better understand human behavior within context and apply the knowledge and skills they are learning to real world situations. As an IHS student, you will be prepared to change the world, your way.

In addition to the core coursework, students work with their advisor to select four areas of concentration specific to their own personal and professional goals. Three areas within the college and one is outside of the college. Concentration areas could include: community health, fashion studies, hospitality management,food science & industry, global food systems, spanish, and more. An internship is embedded in the coursework, and students are encouraged to consider education abroad experiences. This degree may lead to licensure in Family and Consumer Sciences Education in the State of Kansas. Take a look at the program guide (pdf) to see the career possibilities and coursework.
