Human Ecology

December 2, 2021


Human Ecology focuses on how individuals and families function within our society. An emphasis is placed on the importance of “family” as the basic unit in our society. Students will learn how needs are met by individuals, within the context of the family, by integrating theory and practical skills in the courses of Foods and Nutrition, Family Studies, and Textile Arts and Design. An emphasis is placed on an introduction to areas of study in post-secondary education including nutritional science, child development, social work, education, and fashion technology.

Courses in Home Economics include: Foods and Nutrition, Textile Arts and Design, and Family Studies at grade 10, 11 and 12.
