Starting with the Class of 2015, an honors option is available to psychology majors who meet the following requirements:
A 3.700 GPA in the major and a 3.500 GPA overall. This GPA determination is based upon cumulative grades and is confirmed in the student’s second to last semester.
Entry into the honors option is contingent upon the approval of the director of undergraduate education. If interested, students must email Dr. Rachel Grover (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than the close of the student’s second to last semester.
Students will complete one of three possible two-semester sequences listed below and present a seminal project in a professional forum (e.g., Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Colloquium, Psi Chi Induction, professional conference).
- PY300 & PY400: Independent Study in Psychology I & II (wherein an individual research project is completed)
- PY418 & PY419: Research Seminar in Psychology I & II
- PY435 & PY436: Field Experience in Psychology I & II
