Research allows you to analyze and investigate areas that you’re most interested in. Human development and family science major students at Mount Union have the following research opportunities:
- Independent research
- Research with faculty or student peers
- Honors projects
- Research-based courses
By their senior year, students pursuing a human development and family science degree will have developed and implemented a research study from the ground-up, including developing an initial hypothesis, recruiting a sample, collecting data, analyzing data and giving a formal presentation to the department. This Senior Culminating Experience is typically related to the student’s area of interest and is typically done in concert with their peers in a small working group.
