HONORS PROGRAM

The honors program of the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences (BBS) provides enriching educational experiences in a mentoring environment for academically gifted and highly motivated students.

The program helps students get involved in research so that they may complete an honors thesis and gain the skills necessary to succeed in their graduate or professional work.

The goal of the honors program is to help students become self-sufficient and self-motivated learners who can reach their highest potentials. The primary requirement of the honors program is the completion of an honors thesis. Completion of an honors thesis expands students’ skills through enriching educational experiences that will promote greater success in admission to top-ranked graduate schools and/or employment in chosen careers.

To be admitted to the honors program, students must have completed at least 12 graded hours at UT Dallas, including two core courses in the student’s major. Students must also have a GPA of at least 3.5. See a detailed timeline for more information on completion of requirements.
