The School of Education Honors Program underscores the commitment of Howard University to excellence in teaching and learning. The Honors Program will cultivate academic excellence by offering an enhanced set of educational and enrichment opportunities tailored to the special needs, aspirations, and motivations of students with outstanding intellectual and creative abilities. The program envisions the pursuit of intellectual and personal enrichment in an interdisciplinary, diverse, open and challenging academic environment.
The mission of the proposed undergraduate Honors Program in the School of Education for the human development major is to extend the intellectual development and scholastic excellence of students of demonstrated superior academic ability. The program will foster excellence by providing these high achieving, highly motivated students with an in-depth program of study in human development augmented with intensive instruction and individualized mentoring. The program will be particularly attractive to students who plan to pursue graduate and professional degrees which will lead to challenging careers in schools, colleges/universities, community programs, government, and other settings with regard to research, service and policy.
