Psychology Honors Requirements: A Capstone Experience



In addition to the required honors courses, the Honors College notes that individual departments may have additional requirements in order to obtain the Honors College designation upon graduation. The Psychology Department has an additional requirement of a capstone experience. If you are completing the Honors Psychology Second Degree, you have to complete the capstone experience unless your other major has a comparable capstone experience requirement and you have had this approved by your Psychology Honors Faculty Advisor. There are two options for Psychology Honors students to obtain an honors degree in psychology through a capstone experience. 

The options are described below: 

Option A: Research Thesis Track 

Option B: In-depth Experience in Lab or Field Experience

Students should meet with their Psychology Honors Faculty Advisor to discuss the two options and plan accordingly to complete the degree.
