    Honors program
    Students with outstanding academic records are invited to participate in the human ecology honors program. High school students are selected according to their scores on the American College Test. Transfer and continuing K-State students with a 3.5 cumulative grade point average also are eligible. Advisors help honors students plan individual programs of study, which include honors courses and independent study.

    In the junior or senior year, students complete honors projects on topics of their choice. They develop these projects with human ecology faculty advisors and with the approval of the human ecology honors program coordinator. This independent study may involve extensive reading in a selected area, field study, experience with a research project, or participation in an academic activity that will significantly increase the student's knowledge in an area of interest.

    Dual degree programs
    Kansas State University
    Students interested in combining two degree programs must satisfy the requirements for both degrees. Students may earn dual degrees within the College of Human Ecology, or they may combine their degree in human ecology with a degree from a different college.
