Willa V. Tinsley, Dean of the School of Home Economics, chats with students between classes. SCHOOL OF HOME ECONOMICS With Departments In: Applied Arts Clothing and Textiles Food and Nutrition Home Economics Education Home and Family Life The School of Home Economics at Texas Tech has been characterized from its beginning by close fellowship of faculty and students and by breadth and quality of its offerings. Today, the School enrolls over 600 Majors and twice that number of Non-Majors. This places Texas Tech ' s School of Home Economics among the top 15 in the nation with respect to size. The Curriculum in Home Economics focuses on the in- dividual, the family, the home; its subject matter includes human growth and development, relationship between peo- ple of all ages, food and nutrition, clothing and textiles, applied arts, personal and home management, housing and home furnishings, and household equipment. Students who major in Home Economics Education at Texas Tech are eligible to be certified to teach vocation- al home economics in high schools as well as to qualify for provisions in Extension Service. Students who major in Food and Nutrition at Tech are eligible for dietetic internships in approved centers and thus qualify for membership in the American Dietetic Association. Students who major in Clothing and Textiles at Texas Tech are eligible for positions of responsibility in mer- chandising with apparel firms; and for research work in textiles. Students who major in Home and Family Life at Tech are prepared to direct nursery schools and kindergartens and to become home service directors, usually with utility companies or appliance firms. Students who major in Applied Arts at Texas Tech pave the way for becoming interior designers, craftsmen, or consultants to many types of business firms. Home Economics in the past was a program for women only. No longer is this true. During 1961-62, some 150 men students were enrolled in one or more home economics courses. Also, there are more and more men choosing some phase of home economics as a professional career. Five of the present 30 members of the Home Economics faculty at Texas Tech are men. Even more important than bigness is greatness. The School of Home Economics at Tech is recognized widely for its leadership in the profession; its graduates who go on for advanced study have proved the soundness of their basic preparation; its professional home economics hold positions of responsibility throughout the nation and the world. Whether career women or full-time homemakers, home economists from Texas Tech find that their education in home economics serves them equally well. A feeling of belonging is important to individuals of all ages. Students in Home Economics are made to feel an important part of the School. By nature of the course ob- jectives and by design of the facilities for teaching, classes in home economics are relatively small. To aid in the development of the individual, each stu- dent has an academic faculty advisor who assists her in program-planning, schedule-making, and general academic achievement. All members of the home economics faculty are advisors which means no one advisor has more advisees than can be accommodated. In an effort to give further emphasis to the needs of individual students, the dean ex- tends the influence of the School in meeting once each week for a semester, the entering freshman and transfer stu- dents in a further attempt to discover problems, give en- couragement and assistance when needed and to signify to the personal interest in her as an individual. 16
