Please contact the Psychology Department for advisement and permission prior to enrolling in Honors courses.

To earn Departmental Honors in Psychology, a student must:

  1. Maintain a departmental GPA of 3.7, and an overall GPA of 3.25
  2. Complete 3 hours of General Honors courses
  3. In fulfilling a Psychology major, complete at least 6 hours in PSY 4910  taken as Psychology Honors senior project. Typically students will outline the Honors project by the 2nd semester of their junior year. The purpose of this project is to do research of quality worthy of presentation to a professional meeting of psychologists such as UPA and RMPA. If the student is not able to present the research to one of these groups, they will present it to the faculty of the Department of Psychology and one outside member.

Students who have not completed their General Education requirements  are encouraged to take Honors General Education classes.
