Cognitive Science

Departmental Honors Program

Students who, in addition to fulfilling the requirements for the major in cognitive science, also carry out an independent project and an honors thesis may be eligible for honors in cognitive science. Application for admission to the cognitive science honors program may be made during the sophomore or junior year to the director of undergraduate studies in cognitive science. Students must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.300 to be eligible for consideration and must maintain this minimum average to graduate with honors. Students must take Q499. The honors thesis must be certified by a committee of at least three faculty members. The committee director and at least one other member must be Cognitive Science Program faculty. Students who wish to combine honors projects in cognitive science and another department or program may apply to both areas, and every attempt will be made to accommodate such a plan.
