Misconceptions about Home Economics

Home Economics Branches Image
Home Economics education is the bridge for women to enter the modern society and to professionalism.
But there is a big misconception about Home Economics education that one studying it learns to cook and sew only and has no value. It is not true. Home economics is not only concerned with home. It provides a vast variety of careers. It is scientific study of life management. It is the most important tool to be in any profession.
There is this one more misconception that Home Economics education is only for females. It is for males too. If we talk about home, Home Economics education creates a homemaker not a house wife. Anyone can be a home maker, its all about how you play your role.
Home Economics career options :
  1. Nutritionist
  2. Fashion Designer
  3. Interior Designer
and much more. Today these professions are adopted by both men and women.
So it clarifies that Home Economics Education is not about just cooking at home. It is the most modern and important study.
P.S : I’m a home economist and I don’t cook. 😉
