We are a multidisciplinary, pre-professional school preparing students for careers in helping people build better lives. Internships during their final year give most of our students work experience in their chosen career and a head start on their first job offer. Students can major in Interior Design, Textile and Apparel, Gerontology, or Family Services; complete a minor in Family Studies, Textile and Apparel, or Gerontology; or seek a master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling or School Counseling. Please explore these programs on this web site. If you have questions or need any additional information, please use the links below to contact the coordinator for each respective major, or the director of the school, Dr. Howard Barnes.
