Academic advising is handled by the School of Social Sciences' Undergraduate Student Affairs Office and not within the department.
The mission of the Undergraduate Student Affairs is to provide quality, student-centered educational support and to offer services that meet the administrative, academic goals of students, the School and the University.
The Student Affairs office can assist you with academic advising, course planning, change of major request, financial aid appeals, course substitutions, and information concerning honors, graduate and professional school, and career and internships.
Appointments with academic counselors are scheduled for majors in the School of Social Sciences. All others are able to speak with a Peer Advisor at any time.
The Honors Program is designed for students in the Psychology (Cognitive Sciences) major who are interested in pursuing graduate study in psychology or seeking challenging research experiences as a capstone to their undergraduate experience.
The program includes rigorous courses in Experimental Psychology, seminar classes, over one year of research experience, and culminates in an honors thesis.
Applications for Fall 2013 are no longer being accepted. For further information about the honors program and to download the application, please visit: Honors Program in Psychology.
If you have questions about the Honors Program, please send an e-mail to Professor Virginia Richards at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
