44 Human Development “Career Tree” What it doesServes as a SUPPLEMENT to the major curriculum sheets for your curriculum year and college requirementsServes as a GUIDE for how to find career-related classesLists more classes than you can ever possibly takeHow to use itTreat it as a GUIDE – it does not specify absolute requirementsConsider it as a list of alternativesUse it as a guide to find more classes that interest you…this list is NOT meant to be absolute and exhaustive
45 Career-Related Electives Available This Semester AEM 2400 MarketingAEM 3440 Consumer BehaviorCOMM 2010 Oral Communication (juniors & seniors get preference for enrollment)EDUC 2410 The Art of TeachingHORT 4940 Best Practices for Engaging Volunteers
46 If you are interested in the HD Honors Program It is never too early to plan! The application is due October 15 in the junior yearRequirements:GPA 3.5 or higher for final acceptanceComplete first statistics class in sophomore yearComplete HD 4010 research with faculty mentor by the Fall of junior yearTake the Research Methods course—HD 2830Take a more advanced statistics course for a letter grade (HD or 4760 highly recommended, also ILRST 2110, PAM 3100, BTRY 2030, or MATH 2710Write an honors thesis in senior year and attend the weekly Honors seminar
47 Some Hints for Planning Your Schedule Most Cornell classes are available only one semester per year, either Fall or SpringIf you are interested in the HD Honors Program, you should take Statistics in the fall of your sophomore yearYou will be required to take an advanced statistics class later to graduate with Honors in Human Development
48 University and College Expectations: Academic Integrity Examples of ViolationsCopying and using text from the internet, books, or other media, while presenting it as your ownUnauthorized assistance from parents, friends, and internet paper sitesFabricating dataForging signatures on formsHoarding or damaging library materials; hacking class websites to make them unusable by othersMisrepresenting academic accomplishments – “resume padding”Submission of the same work to two or more coursesSharing your work with friends!
49 Getting Involved in Research at Cornell 65% of HD graduating seniors last year had taken part in faculty research (all but 3 had done that research with HD faculty)How did the students get involved?Getting to know professors whose work interested them – talking to professors after classSpeaking with graduate teaching assistants about possible research opportunitiesAttending orientation and informational events where faculty came to describe researchEnrolling in an HD “Laboratory” class, where students learn about research while also taking part in it
50 Special issues for transfer students Take classes that add to what you have taken elsewhere – don’t repeat the same classIf you don’t need 2000-level courses (check your graduation summary), consider 3000-level HD classesAlso, be sure to fulfill College requirements – check with Central Advising for advice about managing requirements
51 Some Final Words on Adapting to Cornell The assumption is that you are self-motivated and can learn how to figure things out on your ownProfessors expect that you will read instructions and follow them – professors do not repeat instructions, they get right down to class materialMany classes do not accept late enrollments (after the first or second week)Many classes do not accept any excuses for late workSome professors require class attendanceGet off on the right foot: refer to professors as “Doctor” or “Professor” – never “Mister”, “Ms”, “Mrs” or by their first name.
