To receive Honors in Cognitive Science, graduating students must have a major GPA of 3.5 or higher. Students will receive a major GPA calculation worksheet from the department in their graduating semester. The worksheet must be completed and submitted to the department’s Director of Undergraduate Studies‘s in a timely manner for review and approval. Only courses directly applied to a student’s cognitive science major, including math and foreign language courses, are included in the major GPA calculation. If the major GPA requirement is met, departmental honors will appear in the student’s transcript and will be indicated in that year’s Commencement program.
Excellence in Cognitive Science Award
Each year, faculty members nominate a graduating cognitive science major with the strongest combination of academic excellence and outstanding accomplishment in research to receive this award, which includes a monetary prize. The student is also acknowledged in the Commencement program.
