COLLEGE HONORS AND DEPARTMENTAL HONORS
There are two ways in which a student graduating with a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology can graduate with honors. First, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) awards the honor of graduating "With Distinction" primarily based on the student having a high overall grade point average. The second form of honors, "Latin honors" (cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude), is awarded by individual departments within CLAS.
The CU Denver Psychology Department has approved a very rigorous set of requirements for Latin honors, described below. Successful completion of an honors project is at least a year-long, multifaceted process in which the student makes a contribution to our knowledge in Psychology. A student who satisfies these requirements will have truly earned a noteworthy academic achievement of which they should be rightfully proud.
