The department has an Honors in Psychology (HiP) program for majors. It provides outstanding, accomplished students with an opportunity to plan, carry out, and report the results of an independent, advanced, collaborative research project under the supervision of a faculty research mentor. The program will be completed over the last two years of a student’s academic career.
If a student has a cumulative psychology GPA of 3.500 or better, a cumulative GPA of 3.200 or better, and has taken PSYC 2050H, he or she is strongly encouraged to apply to the program. Students should apply in the Spring semester of their junior year.
Admission to the honors program is not guaranteed by meeting these requirements. Admissions will also be determined by the number of faculty members available to supervise research projects. If there is greater demand than can be met, students who have previous research experience with a faculty member and who have completed more of their psychology coursework requirements will be given priority in admissions.
Once enrolled in the honors program, students will take 6 credits of research experience, as shown here. These courses will entail working with a faculty member directly.
Students who are accepted into the Honors in Psychology program are concurrently accepted into the University Honors Program. Students must have at least a final 3.500 cumulative GPA in Psychology and a final 3.200 cumulative GPA to graduate with Disciplinary Honors in Psychology.
The deadline for applications is 5:00 pm on Friday, March 19, 2021.
