Psychology Honors Program


Return to College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Return to: College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

The Psychology Honors Program, which is separate from the University Honors Program, provides a challenging educational experience for students of high academic promise and achievement in psychology. Students who have achieved at least a 3.20 GPA overall and a 3.50 in psychology courses should apply for admission as early as possible because the Psychology Honors Program requires specific course work. A letter of interest addressed to the Director of Undergraduate Studies serves as an application.

Requirements


  • Completion of the psychology major requirements for the baccalaureate degree.
  • A cumulative GPA of at least 3.20 overall and 3.50 or above in psychology courses.
  • Completion of at least 6 of the required 15 semester hours of elective credit at the 300-400 level with honors (of which 3 hours must be PSYC 306, Advanced Research Methods, taken for honors credit).
  • Completion of 4-6 hours of PSYC 499.
  • Completion of a written honors proposal and thesis, which are orally presented to the Psychology Honors Committee to the satisfaction of the faculty adviser and Honors Committee. NOTE: Successful completion of the Honors Thesis will count as one laboratory course for the purpose of meeting department B.A. or B.S. requirements.
