The future of health and human sciences

We have had many names — home economics, human ecology and now health and human sciences. But one thing that hasn’t changed is our mission: in a world focused on things, we focus first on people.

Good medicine

To the rescue! K-State’s physician assistant program addresses the vital need for health care professionals in Kansas, particularly in rural areas. We saw a need, and we found a solution.

College of Health and Human Sciences
Students in the College of Health and Human Sciences focus on people, not things.

People first, not things. That’s our focus. In all they study, our students concentrate on how their work serves people.

  • Athletic training and rehabilitation sciences gets people moving and fit.
  • Personal financial planning’s business mindset helps people achieve their life plans.
  • Family therapy teaches coping strategies to keep households together.
  • Fashion studies focus on how clothing and textile products best serve people.

Investment from donors provides resources our students need to gain hands-on experience, access to the latest technology, and opportunities to explore career-enhancing activities.

You can make a difference by investing in:

  • Facilities and technology necessary to provide students the tools and opportunities to advance their education
  • Faculty scholars who train the next generation of industry leaders and model effective practices
  • Scholarship support to keep these vital fields accessible to people from all backgrounds
  • Student learning, field experiences, support programs and career advising that make our grads the best they can be
See how all types of students — athletic training majors, first-gen students, fashion studies and others — gain a richer education because of scholarships.
