The study of Home Science deals with the most vital aspects of modern housekeeping. Home Science, or the science of a home, in simple words, includes all the things that concern yourself, your home, your family members and your resources. It aims at getting maximum satisfaction for you and your family members through the efficient and scientific use of your resources. The science is aimed at achieving and maintaining the welfare and well being of home and family life in an ever changing society. It includes not only nutritional needs of the family members but also planning expenditure and budgeting resources available to the family as well. The application of economic principles in relation to income, expenses and consumption comes under the purview of Home Economics. Home science aims at developing an individual, its knowledge, attitudes, values and skills, which guide one to meet personal needs and aspirations of an individual to become a well adjusted member of the family.
