Honors in Psychology

Our psychology honors program provides a unique opportunity for students to design and carry out original research under the close supervision of a faculty member. It is designed for students who have a specific area of interest, who can think creatively, work well on their own and have a topic they would enjoy delving into.

We encourage you to apply when you have met the eligibility requirements and have demonstrated strong academic achievement in your courses.


Our department prides itself in offering students a hands-on education and training in applied settings. Oswego's strong internship network means you can pursue many field opportunities that build your skills and experience. Applied experiences are paired with an academic component through partnerships with faculty sponsors, where students develop career-related materials and skills-based learning outcomes. Students can learn more about internship opportunities through SUNY Oswego's EXCEL Office.
