Science Based. Human Focused.
The School of Human Ecology offers two honors program options for highly motivated students:
Honors in Advanced Human Development and Family Sciences
The Department of Human Development and Family Sciences is an interdisciplinary department focused on how children develop, how families form and function, and how individuals and their family relationships change across the life span. Honors in Advanced Human Development and Family Sciences (HAHDFS) is an accelerated program that is comprised of talented undergraduates interested in these issues.
