Honors College

Dean's Update:



  • Early Decision Deadline for USF COM

    If you are planning to apply to the USF Morsani College of Medicine through the Early Decision program, please note that you need to submit your primary application prior to July 3, so that AMCAS has sufficient time to verify your records. Additionally, if you have not done so already, please submit your post-secondary transcript(s) as soon as possible (these need to be accompanied by the AMCAS transcript request form). If you have any questions, or need assistance with your application, please contact Ms. Sturrock at asturrock@honors.usf.edu.


  • Thesis Opportunities


     


    This note is from Dr. Bryant in the Psychology Department


    I have a couple ideas for potential honors theses and would love to work with two great students who could conduct them.  Could you please alert students who are seeking projects and mentors?  Thanks.


    1.  Undergraduates'' perceptions of whether to intervene when they observe cheating in their classes.  As part of another study, I have oral responses from 125 participants discussing a hypothetical scenario involving observed cheating.  These could be coded and analyzed using existing theory about academic dishonesty and ethical development.


    2.  The effects of cats'' and dogs'' breed, size, and color on perceptions of potential adopters.  Every Halloween claims are made about the adoption of black cats and dogs.  Prior research involves analyses of adoption records from rescue facilities and some poorly designed experiments.  I think a solid experiment could be combined with a longitudinal descriptive study of records.


     


  • Fantastic Paid OnCampus Job Possibility


    I would love to have another student to work with me here at Graphicstudio. It would be 10 hours a week, duties to liase with students/student groups on campus, assist with the planning and management of student-oriented events, curate and coordinate the Graphicstudio project at the Honors College, and generally help out.  You must be bright and hardworking with an interest in art - any major is fine!


    Thanks so much,
