The department of Family and Community Resource Management, formerly known as Home Management, is one of the pioneers in India offering specialization at undergraduate, post graduate and doctorate level. The department launched a specialization programme, leading to B.Sc. degree in the academic year 1953-54. Master’s degree programme was initiated in the year 1962-63. During the academic year 1978-79, the department launched its Doctorate degree programme. The Master’s degree programme received a boost in the year 1992-93 by offering to areas of specialization namely: (i) Resource Management and Family Economics and (ii) Housing, Interiors and Household Equipment. Special efforts were made to enhance the scope for academic development and commercial application hence the later was developed into a more focused specialization, and was reframed as “Interior Design” specialization. The need to create vocation based programme at Bachelor’s level necessitated enhancement in professional skills and competencies amongst the students. In the year 2003-04 the department, thus, introduced two streams in its UG programme titled as (i) Interior Design and (ii) Hospitality Management.
