Students must complete three elective courses. These electives are chosen from the psychology courses listed above or from approved courses in other departments. A maximum of two courses from outside of the psychology department may be counted toward the major.
PSY 3990 - Internship in Psychology (strongly recommended)
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 also have other prerequisites. 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.
