in psychology may be eligible to graduate with the designation Honors in
Psychology, if both their GPA in psychology and overall GPA are 3.5 or
higher. In addition to a GPA of 3.5, honors students must complete PSYC
498 (Thesis Development Seminar) and 499 (Honors Thesis Seminar), and
make an oral presentation.
PSYC 498 and PSYC 499 are a two-course sequence for high
achieving and highly motivated psychology majors, which will give them
hands-on experience in generating, conducting, analyzing and
communicating the results of empirical psychological research. The
program is completed in the following sequence: PSYC 498, proposal
development and IRB application (Spring, junior year); PSYC 499, data
gathering and thesis writing (Fall, senior year); oral presentation
(Spring, senior year).
Further information is available from the chair of the
Psychology Department and should be discussed at the beginning of the
student's junior year.
All Psychology students are eligible to apply for
participation in the Honors Program in the Humanities.
