Home economics courses have been part of the curriculum of Stout since it opened its doors in 1891. However, it was not until 1903 that the Stout Training School for Teachers of Domestic Science and Art was established. The courses given by this school were in the areas of foods, home nursing and emergencies, chemistry, biology, and physics. The Domestic Arts Program included dressmaking, millinery, art needlework, textiles, and household management. In 1918, when the school expanded to a four-year curriculum, it became possible for education majors to concentrate in either the foods or clothing areas. In the 1930s, minors became a part of the program. During the late 1930s and the 1940s courses emphasized in the areas of consumer education, child development and education. With the great influx of the students that began in the 1950s and 1960s the School of Home Economics continued to grow until it became the largest school of its kind in the nation. The curriculum also expanded into such areas as hotel and restaurant management. Today the School of Home Economics offers programs in Apparel Design and Manufacturing, Child Development and Family Life, Dietetics, Early Childhood Education, Fashion Merchandising/Retail Merchandising and Management, Foodservice Administration, Home Economics Educational Services, Home Economics in Business, and Hospitality and Tourism Management.
