An honors option is available to all psychology majors who have a 3.700 GPA in the major and a 3.500 GPA overall. This GPA determination is based upon grades in the student’s second to last semester and is contingent upon the approval of the director of undergraduate education. Students will present their seminal project in a professional forum (e.g., Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Colloquium, Psi Chi Induction, professional conference). Moreover, they need to complete one of three possible two-semester sequences listed below in addition to the GPA requirement to earn honors.
- 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
