How does research in a PSYC/NRSC lab relate to an honors thesis?
Honors can be a great cumulation for the valuable experience you gain in a research lab. For students considering research for the purpose of graduating with Honors (GPA above a 3.3), below is a suggested timeline on when to start research in a Psychology or Neuroscience lab to allow time to write and defend a Departmental Honors Thesis. Learn more on the Honors page.
Please note this is a suggested timeline based on a 4-year plan; transfer students are still eligible to do departmental honors through research! Meet with your Academic Advisor to create a customized plan.
