UNDERGRADUATE HONOURS PROGRAM

The Honours program is a two-year program that is designed to provide advanced training in psychological research to outstanding students who intend to pursue PhD-level graduate studies in Psychology.


Students admitted into the Honours program complete several advanced research-relevant courses during their third and fourth years, in addition to completing the regular BA or BSc requirements. Honours students are also required to conduct research projects under faculty supervision during their third and fourth years, write major papers each year on their research, and present their research results at the Psychology Department's annual Undergraduate Research Conference.

Admission to the Honours program is highly competitive. As a minimum requirement, admission to the Honours program requires at least a 76% average in the second year and at least 80% in both PSYC 217 and 218 (BA Majors) or PSYC 260 (BSc Majors). Students who wish to be considered for admission to the Honours program apply during the second half of their Second year. Prior to applying, interested students should consult the Psychology Department's web site for more detailed information about the Honours program (see list of requirements and the FAQs linked to this page).
