    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 can include honors courses and independent study. In the junior or senior year, students complete honors projects on topics of their choice. Each student participates in two semesters of service- learning to help select an appropriate honors project topic and human ecology faculty advisor, then develops the honors project with the advisor and the approval of the human ecology honors program coordinator.

    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. Contact the dean's office for more information.

    Manhattan Christian College
    The College of Human Ecology cooperates with Manhattan Christian College to plan dual degree programs that enable students to earn degrees from both institutions. Students interested in dual degrees should contact the College of Human Ecology Dean's Office and Manhattan Christian College, Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs.

    Secondary majors
    Certain departmental courses have been approved for credit toward secondary majors in American ethnic studies, international studies, women's studies, and gerontology. A list of approved courses is in the Secondary Majors section of this catalog.

    With careful planning, students may be able to complete requirements for a minor within the B.S. degree requirements or with a few additional courses. The hotel and restaurant management degree program includes the courses required for a concurrent minor in business.

    For more information, see the minors section of this catalog and consult an academic advisor and the director of the specific minor program.

    The College of Human Ecology cooperates with Career and Employment Services to help students locate internships, co-op education, part-time work, and professional employment in their chosen fields.

    Field experience
    Each department in the college offers field study experience for interested and qualified students. Students may earn university credit while gaining pre-professional experience. University faculty and professionals in the field guide and supervise these experiences.

    Organizations and activities
    Students participate in a wide range of professional activities sponsored by local and national organizations. Most professional areas within the college have a student organization to enhance the personal and professional development of members. Student associations include:

    American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists
    American Society of Interior Designers
    Apparel Marketing and Design Alliance
    Early Childhood Education Interest Group
    Family and Consumer Sciences Association
    Family Studies and Human Services Association
