Pages: 1-4


The Family and Community Resource Management is one of the discipline under Family and Community Sciences. The Family and Community Resource Management is a dynamic and ever growing field of education. It is an applied field built upon both the discipline of science and humanities for the purpose of achieving the welfare and wellbeing of the family in an ever changing society. The department offers two specializations. One is Hospitality Management and the second is Interior Design. The courses offered under these two specializations very well matches with the thoughts of Swami Vivekanada focusing on development of leadership, self development, self empowerment, self confidence, man-making, women education, training of mind, freedom in education, personality development in context to physical, mental and spiritual, upliftment of underprivileged and vocationalisation. Though most of the thoughts of Swami ji have been incorporated in the curriculum of Family and Community Resource Management but still more need to be incorporated with the changing demands and needs of the community.
