Innovate! Create! Make it great!
As a student in SFA’s School of Human Sciences, you’ll gain valuable hands-on experience to prepare you for in-demand jobs.
In recent semesters, our undergraduates have explored fascinating facets of their majors, both inside the classroom and out in the community. Here’s just a sample of their hands-on experiences:
- Food, nutrition and dietetics students regularly volunteer at the Nacogdoches Farmers Market. They also work with clients at HOPE Food Pantry and, under the direction of Justin Pelham, teach a community cooking course called Cooking Matters!
- Hospitality administration majors work closely with historic preservation program Nacogdoches Main Street, Nacogdoches historic sites, and the Nacogdoches Convention & Visitors Bureau and Chamber of Commerce.
- Interior Design students recently helped develop spatial distancing plans at SFA in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. They’ve also worked with Love, INC., to plan a shower and laundry facility for the community nonprofit. In addition, interior design students work on real-life design problems through different charrette experiences.
- Merchandising majors created innovative shopping experiences for customers of Goodwill Industries.
- Human Development and Family Studies students work Jacks Council on Family Research to distribute food to more than 150 families each Thanksgiving.
