Home Science is a subject with multidirectional avenues. Hence it may be a discipline, which can bridge the gap between science and it's application for the betterment of family living. But now, the subject has moved out of the homes to reach community and the nation. it integrates the application of knowledge synthesis from different sciences and humanities to improve the human environment, family nutrition, management of resources, child development and consumer competence. Thus it is the science, which makes women to live in a standard way in the community as a Dietitian, Nutritionist, Teachers, Researchers, Food analyst, Quality controllers etc.
