Distinction in the major
The department of psychology recognizes graduating students with distinction in the major. You need to apply to be considered. If you have done excellent work in or out of the classroom and/or have contributed to the department in some way you should apply! Please see the application form for details.
The application consists of several essay-type questions about you. Read the application thoroughly. We suggest you write the essays in another program (Word, GoogleDoc, etc...) and revise for clarity. Finally, submit when you're ready.
Please ask your PSY faculty if you have questions about the application.
