Students majoring in psychology have the opportunity to earn honors by completing a  two-semester thesis project that is designed to be similar to a master's thesis. During the first semester, the student does a literature search of existing research on his or her topic, and uses that material as the basis for a Research Proposal.  There is a formal defense of the proposal before a committee of 3-4 faculty members at the end of the first semester.
