Human Development Honors Program

The Human Development Honors Program is a two-year program sequence beginning in the fall of the junior year. An overall aim of the program is to create a Community of Scholars Model whereby students who work closely with the faculty will gain greater depth and knowledge about research and scholarship in human development.

The emphasis of the Human Development Honors Program is on the scientific process (research proposal, empirical study, thesis write-up), communication skills (presentations, results, discussions, and writing), and diversity, equity, and inclusion (awareness of diversity science, open science, and global science). Participation in the Human Development Honors program will prepare students for graduate study as well as provide in-depth experiences pertinent to academic careers in the areas of developmental psychology and educational psychology as well as positions in government, education, policy, public health, and related areas.
