Q: Where can I find more information about CHE's undergraduate majors?
A: Our major-specific fact sheets are a great place to get an overview of the major, along with examples, of research, internships, and career paths.
Q: What does the CHE undergraduate curriculum look like by major?
A: Take a look at the major-specific curriculum sheets.
Q: Is there a required design portfolio/index submissions for the Design & Environmental Analysis (DEA), Fashion Design & Management (FD&M) or Fiber Science majors?
A: Yes, those majors require a design submission/portfolio in addition to the Common Application! Carefully review our guidelines and deadlines. Applications will not be considered without these materials.
Q: Can I submit my design submission for DEA, FD&M, or Fiber Science after I have submitted my Common Application?
A: Yes, but the design submission still must be submitted by the established application deadline.
Q: What kind of research is happening in CHE and can undergraduates participate?
A: Research is happening across CHE -- through our academic departments as well as our affiliated centers and institutes -- and undergraduates play a significant role in that process. Our Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research adds another dimension to the research happening here.
Q: How can I add supplemental information (items that are not required as part of the application process such as creative samples for non-DEA, FD&M, or Fiber Science majors or additional information) to my application file?
A: These pieces can be added to your application through your application portal. Take a look at Cornell University's Admissions FAQs for more information.
Q: How can I learn more about undergraduate student life in the College of Human Ecology?
A: Email a Human Ecology Ambassador with student life questions during the fall and/or spring semesters.
Q: I have carefully read the available information and still have questions about CHE. Who can I email?
A: You can email our Admissions Office with additional questions. Contacting faculty and academic departments directly is strongly discouraged.
