The College of Human Ecology, previously a part of the College of Education composed of the Department of Clothing, Department of Home Education, and Department of Food and Nutrition in 1967, became an independent college as the College of Domestic Subjects Training in 1982. In 1997, the title of the college has changed into the College of Human Ecology, comprised of the Department of Clothing, Department of Food and Nutrition, and Department of Interior Architecture Design.

The College of Human Ecology will make continuous efforts to solve the problems related to the rapidly changing living environment with technical and democratic changes. Human ecology is a study to develop our lives better so that we can adapt to the changes in the environment that we live in. In order to meet these demands, the College of Human Ecology aims to research the interaction between individuals and society, and to cultivate creative and challenging global leaders with Clothing, Food and Nutrition, and Interior Architecture Design backgrounds.
