At the end-of-the-academic-year luncheon for Majors and Minors on May 4, it was the privilege of Helen Bateman, Associate Professor and Chair, to announce the members of the class of 2011 who will receive their degrees with Honors in Psychology on May 15.
Each will receive a letter signed by all eight members of the Department that reads:
"Departmental honors in psychology are awarded based on distinguished work in psychology during the undergraduate career. Unlike the College-wide honors (cum Laude, Magna cum Laude, Summa cum Laude), the decision is not based solely on GPA but involves consideration of the quality of any additional intellectual accomplishments in psychology such as independent research, conference presentations, and internships.
"Having reviewed your work in psychology—your coursework, your performance on the comprehensive examination, and your additional intellectual accomplishments in psychology—we are delighted to award you Honors in Psychology. This fact will appear both on your diploma—suitably encrypted in Latin—and on your transcript.
"Congratulations on an exceptional undergraduate career!"
Departmental honors are also noted in the list of degree recipients distributed at The Convocation for the Conferring of Degrees from the College of Arts and Sciences.
