The Purdue University College of Health and Human Sciences is one of 11 major academic divisions, or colleges, of Purdue University. Established in 2010, the College of Health and Human Sciences is the newest college to be established at Purdue University, and the college currently offers B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees for all 10 of its academic units.

Academic Units[edit]

The College of Health and Human Sciences consists of 10 academic units:

  • Human Development and Family Studies
  • Consumer Science
  • Nutrition Science
  • Health and Kinesiology
  • Health Sciences
  • Hospitality and Tourism Management
  • Nursing
  • Psychological Sciences
  • Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences
  • Public Health Graduate Program

Location[edit]

Similar to other colleges at Purdue University, education courses meet in several buildings throughout Purdue's West Lafayette campus. However, the College's offices are distributed across several buildings on the West Lafayette campus,[3] such as Hampton Hall of Civil Engineering housing the advising offices of the Health Sciences unit,[4] and Stone Hall containing the business office of the college.[5]

History[edit]

In 2009, a faculty-led task force, which included heads of several academic units, was established in order to explore the opportunities of a possible college realignment. Shortly afterwards in the same year, the task force had proposed the realignment of their respective academic units, in order to create a new academic division, the College of Health and Human Sciences. Citing benefits such as addressing global challenges, promoting discovery with delivery and enhancing student access and success, the Board of Trustees approved the proposal the following February, with the College of Health and Human Sciences officially launching July of the same year. The newly formed college contained nine academic units from the College of Liberal Arts, the former College of Pharmacy, Nursing and Health Sciences, and the College of Consumer and Family Sciences. A tenth, individual unit, the Public Health Graduate Program, was launched in 2014.[6]

In 2014, Purdue University dedicated Lyles-Porter Hall, housing training and research programs for the Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences. Alongside with the Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences, the building also houses Indiana University School of Medicine - West Lafayette, as well as the rest of the clinical space being occupied by part of the School of Nursing, and parts of the departments of Nutrition Science, Psychological Sciences and Health and Kinesiology.[7]

In 2016, Purdue dedicated a new MRI facility to house two new MRI machines alongside their already present small animal MRI facility, the Life Science MRI Facility containing a Siemens MAGNETOM Primsa 3T MRI machine and the Engineering MRI Facility containing a GE Discovery MR750 3T MRI. The Life Science MRI Facility, supported by the College, is used to help advance basic and applied life science research on the Purdue campus.[8]

Rankings[edit]

Several of the College of Health and Human Science's graduate programs are highly ranked by U.S. News & World Report, most notably Purdue's Speech-Language Pathology. However, unlike most other colleges at Purdue University, there is no overall ranking system for the College of Health and Human Sciences. The 2019 rankings for the College's graduate programs are listed below:[9]

Graduate Program Ranking
