If you are interested in getting involved in research and earning credit, click here to view and download descriptions of opportunities in the Department of Psychology for the Fall. Once you’ve been accepted as a research assistant with a lab, be sure to complete and submit the Psych 199 application to enroll in the units.


Honors Thesis

We will begin accepting applications for the Psychology honors thesis next week.

Whether or not you have submitted the application and officially enrolled in the Psych H194A Honors Seminar, you should attend the first day of the Seminar lecture. Visit our Honors webpage for more information about completing an Honors thesis in Psychology.
