Psychology, Honors Program

The Honors Program in Psychology involves a two-semester thesis project (PSYC 4690  and PSYC 4691 ) that is designed to be similar to a master’s thesis.  During the first semester, the student does a literature search of existing research on his or her topic, and uses that material as the basis for a Research Proposal.  There is a formal defense of the proposal before a committee of 3-4 faculty members at the end of the first semester.  Following successful completion, the honors notation will appear on a student’s official transcript.
