Psychology Honors Contracts

Students may ask the instructor of psychology course to negotiate an honors contract. The contract should be completed before the second week of classes and turned in to the Psychology Honors Coordinator, Dr. William Zachry, along with a copy of the course syllabus. The instructor and student agree on a substitute or additional assignment that would provide a more challenging learning experience. Examples include an extra research paper, outside readings, class presentations, laboratory or field research, or other independent project.

Students pursuing an honors contract must complete the PHP Contract Form.

Psychology Honors Senior Thesis

Students may ask a Psychology faculty member to serve as advisor for the Honors Senior Thesis, typically completed during the student's last semester. Before enrolling in Senior Thesis, students complete at least one semester of Directed Research with the same faculty advisor who will oversee work on the Senior Thesis. For detailed information, please see the Directed Research/Senior Thesis Guidelines.

If you have questions, please contact the Honors Program Coordinator.
