The Graduate School of Human Environmental Sciences was established in 1996 to cultivate professionals through education based on theory and its practice. The Graduate School offers a master's degree and a one-year non-degree program. Students may choose to major in (1) Communications in the Fashion Industry, (2) Hotel and Restaurant Management, (3) Functional Food and Nutrition, (4) Interior Environmental Design, (5) Design Information Systems and (6) Family Counseling.
All applicants must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited four-year university. For the master's degree, the students must acquire a minimum of 30 credits during two and a half years (five semesters), pass the comprehensive examinations, and submit an acceptable thesis or complete a corresponding project.
A certificate is issued to non-degree students after the satisfactory completion of seven courses and fulfillment of the one-year residency requirement. Two executive management programs, one for women leaders and another for restaurant foodservice owners, are offered as one-semester non-degree courses.
