The required forms for the Honors Project are available for download from the Psychology Department website (see below). For help, consult with the Department’s Honors advisor, Derek Isaacowitz, and for a reminder of the honors eligibility requirements, click here.

You will also need to fill out an Honors Thesis DRS Submittal Form (see Prof. Isaacowitz to complete).

After the thesis proposal has been approved by the Department Honors Committee (see Guidelines and Step-by-Step documents for details), students register for two semesters of Honors research: Either two Honors Project courses (PSYC4970 and PSYC4971), or one Honors Project course (PSYC4970) and a Directed Study Research course (PSYC4991). When the final written thesis is approved by the Committee a copy of the approved thesis is submitted to the Psychology Department.

Your faculty research mentor will submit grades for all related courses.
