Honors Program in Psychology
The departmental Honors Program is particularly appropriate for Psychology majors with strong academic records who want additional exposure to the research process. Graduation with honors in Psychology reflects a student’s independence, commitment to the field, and expertise in a specialized area. Completion of the program may be advantageous to students applying to graduate or professional programs.
A minimum GPA of 3.3 is required for admission. Prerequisite courses include PSY 311 and PSY 412 , but in special cases, these may be taken after admission to the program.
Participants in the program register for PSY 495H - Honors Seminar in the spring semester, during which they develop proposals for the research that they conduct under faculty supervision during the following year while registered for PSY 497H - Honors Project and/or PSY 498H - Honors Project and Defense .
Applications are solicited in the fall semester; instructions may be obtained in the Psychology Department office (CB 158).
