Welcome message from
Ag. Head of Department
Welcome to the Department of Family Life and Consumer Studies (Home Economics), School of Vocational Studies, Kyambogo university.
It is commonly said that the family is the basic unit of society and we all know socialization begins at home and “charity begins at home”. Knowledge and skills of family life help to prepare individuals and families for the roles and responsibilities of family living.
The department of Family Life and Consumer studies (Home Economics) is one of the oldest departments at Kyambogo University dating way back in the early 1960s when the then Domestic Science college was moved from Nkokonjeru to Kyambogo on Banda hill and became Kyambogo Domestic science college. In 1964, it was then named “The Uganda college of Home Economics”. This college was later absorbed into Kyambogo T.T.C and consequently became part of the new National Teachers College in 1965. This followed an increase in the need for the training of women teachers in both quality and quantity. The Department was then known as Home Economics and has since been training Teachers (Diploma in Education) who have taught Home Economics in secondary schools.
The Department of Family Life and Consumer Studies (Home Economics) currently is running four (4) academic programmes:
The department is currently supported by three full-time staff and a good number of part-time staff.
