Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: >College of Liberal Arts

Major Requirements

The major in psychology requires a minimum of 10 courses that must include:

5000-level course

At least one 5000-level course


5000-level courses are available to psychology majors who have attained senior status or have completed 7 courses in psychology including PSY 1330 and 1340; these courses may also have other prerequisites. The 5000-level course requirement may be fulfilled by completing one of the 5000-level courses, each of which is limited to 15 students, or by completing an honors project in psychology. Although registration priority is given to seniors who have not completed the 5000-level course requirement, qualified majors may enroll in more than one seminar on a space-available basis.

A student should confer with members of the department when planning a program for a career in psychology. The set of courses a student will take depends on his or her background and special interests. Related courses in other departments are usually taken from the social sciences and natural sciences, but supporting work in the humanities and fine arts is encouraged.

As a rule, coursework from other departments is not counted in the psychology major. Exceptions include one of the above-named statistics courses and Educational Psychology (EDU 3250).
