For students interested in doing regular or advance research in Psychology (391/392 or 395/396), please send completed and signed forms to Colleen Lord for a special permission number:
All research forms need to be signed by student and faculty research advisor. Please note that if the advisor is outside of the Psychology Dept, a faculty member of the Psych Dept will need to co-sign.
HONORS THESIS PROGRAM
For students interested in the Psychology Honors Thesis Program (497:H/498:H/490:H). This program is open to Psychology majors in their senior year and it involves two semesters of honors research (typically fall/spring with exceptions for off-cycle spring/fall). Must have a minimum of a 3.4 gpa in psych and a 3.0 gpa overall.
Students accepted into the program will register for 497:H1 honors research for 3 credits and attend the 490:H1 honors seminar in the fall semester, also for 3 credits. In the spring, students will take the second part of the honors research (498:H) for 3 credits.
For approval into the Honors Program, students must submit an honors proposal (see details with honors form) with a completed and signed honors application form and a copy of an unofficial transcript to Colleen Lord:
The deadline for submitting the honors proposal and application form is no later than the first week of fall classes!
