Home science is a field of study with its mission to empower individual, family and community for effective role performance and management of resources to improve the quality of life. It primarily emerged out of the felt need for a comprehensive type of training for girls in the context of changes in the socio-economic environment as well as the changes in the family system and functions. Home science was conceptualized basically as an interdisciplinary applied area of study built upon the basic and social scientific knowledge. There are five major areas, viz., Food and Nutrition, Clothing and Textiles, Family Resource Management, Child Development and Family Relations and Home Science Extension Education. It is the only professional study with the nucleus of the family as a social and economic institution. Although, the philosophy of home science was more family oriented and is even increasingly so, the home science has now broadened its philosophy to relate the nucleus of family to the national educational policies and national economy.
