You can earn an Honors degree in Psychology or Neuroscience by completing an independent laboratory research project and thesis. The earned designation appears on your transcript and degree, giving you an advantage on the job market or if you apply to a doctoral program.
It is recommended that you begin the Honors process during your sophomore year, choosing a research sponsor and project area. You should work in a PBS faculty member's research lab and enroll in Supervised Research during your sophomore and junior year.
High achieving students may be recognized for Academic Excellence by the College of Arts and Sciences by making the Dean’s List or earning a Degree with Distinction. Very high achieving students may be invited to apply for admission to the Hutton Honors College.
