Psychology Scholars Program
Benefits of Being a Psychology Scholar at GCU
The program offers several benefits to its members, including the following:
- Scholarships: First-year applicants who become members can receive an honors scholarship.
- Accelerated graduation: The program is designed to be completed in 3.5 years, so students do not have to complete or pay for an extra semester. Students with a dual major (education, psychiatric rehabilitation and psychology) can complete the dual degree in four years.
- Guaranteed acceptance to GCU psychology graduate programs: If you maintain an excellent GPA and successfully interview, you are guaranteed acceptance to your choice of The Court’s three M.A. programs in psychology: clinical mental health counseling, school psychology, and applied behavior analysis.
- A tight-knit support system: You’ll work through the cohort-based program with a team of classmates—a built-in social and academic support network.
- Fascinating coursework: Honors courses include more in-depth experiences. For example, students in Social Psychology conducted an experiment investigating environmental knowledge and attitudes on campus; the Multicultural Psychology class went to Italy during spring break.
- Excellent credentials: Your transcript is marked with your honors status, and every honors course is identified as such—clearly identifying you as an exceptional student.
- World-class instructors: Full-time, doctoral-level faculty members teach the honors courses.
- Honors housing: The beautiful honors residence hall provides an ideal setting for high-caliber students to live and work.
- Access to the University Honors Program: PSP students can also join the University Honors Program, but do not have to be a member of it to participate in the PSP.
- Research and internship experiences: All students in the program qualify for research and internship programs, better equipping you for continued success in the field.
