Gearing Hall is the epicenter of a unique university experience that is the School of Human Ecology. As part of this School, undergraduates have numerous opportunities to make their education richer and deeper with hands-on, practical experience.
There are three main areas of interest that are under the umbrella office of Undergraduate Education:
- Office of Experiential Learning: Are you interested in exploring early childhood education in another country? Do you want to join a lab researching the genetics of cancer or the effect of sugar on children? Many School of Human Ecology students participate in some form of experiential learning, whether it is an internship, study abroad, or laboratory research.
- Division of Textiles and Apparel: Do you notice presentation when you visit a shop? Are you continually designing clothes and noticing trends? Undergraduates in this program major in apparel design, merchandizing & consumer science, or conservation & museum studies.
- Degree in Public Health: Disease prevention is becoming more and more critical, and if you are interested in protecting communities, this degree is for you.
