    Honors Program

    The honors program in the College of Education has been established for undergraduate students who have demonstrated high academic achievement. The major purpose of the honors program is to give selected students an opportunity to expand their knowledge of the teaching profession and to acquire a desire to be leaders in the profession. The program is designed for students in the College of Education and other students who are completing a teacher certification program through another college at K-State.

    Participants may expect to receive recognition of academic ability and achievements; learn and interact with other honor students in small groups; establish close association with faculty members in seminars and research projects; exercise creativity and explore leadership responsibilities; and have alternatives to selected required courses in the professional education component.

    Admission requirements
    1. Present a written statement of interest in the program.

    2. Submit an ACT Composite score of 28 or higher or evidence of a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 in a minimum of 9 semester hours of college work.

    3. Enroll in the non-credit course DED 010 Introduction to the Honors Program.

    4. Have a satisfactory interview with a faculty member of the Honors Program Coordinating Committee.

    Student progression after admission
    1. Formal admission to the honors program by the Coordinating Committee.

    2. Enrollment each semester in DED 020 Honors Program (0).

    3. Enrollment in a minimum of two Honors Seminars (DED 320) prior to graduating.

    4. Maintenance of a grade point average of 3.5 or better in all college work.

    5. Completion of DED 420 Honors Research (1-3), for at least 2 credit hours under the supervision of a professor in the College of Education.

    Features of the honors program
    Honors seminars are offered each semester. Students will be encouraged to enroll in one seminar each semester although the minimum requirement for the program is two honors seminars. One of the required seminars may be taken in another college at K-State. The seminars will focus on topics that will broaden the knowledge of future teachers and give them insights into leadership responsibilities in their professions.

    Honors Research gives students an opportunity to work with professors having similar research interests. Research topics may be selected from a range of areas and they may reflect the student's particular interests.
