Wheaton College and the Psychology Department recognize and honor students who have excelled academically and experientially and who demonstrate promise in the field at Honors Convocation in their senior year. Additionally, students have the opportunity to pursue an honors thesis to work closely with a Wheaton faculty member and investigate topics of interest. The Psychology Department is a chapter of Psi Chi, the National Undergraduate Honor Society of Psychology, and inducts students who have completed the required course work and have demonstrated academic excellence in the major/minor.
