To complete the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Psychology, students must meet both the core curriculum and major requirements.


Core Curriculum - The Hamline Plan

The “Hamline Plan” refers to the core areas in which students must demonstrate learning. These areas include effective writing, speaking and presentation, collaboration, global citizenship, facility with diversity, reasoning, critical inquiry, practice of the liberal arts (LEAP), and study in four disciplinary areas: fine arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. Students complete the Hamline Plan using a combination of transferred coursework and Hamline coursework.

Required Core Courses

All students must take the following four courses at Hamline:

Remaining Core Requirements

The Hamline Plan core areas of writing, speaking, critical inquiry, LEAP, and social science are completed within the major. Please see the the major course requirements below for details.

The remaining requirements depend on the courses a student transfers to Hamline. The following lists show the total number of courses a student must complete in each core area (through a combination of transfer and Hamline coursework) and the Hamline course options available to fill any missing requirements. One course may be used to meet requirements in more than one core area.

Students may take any combination of courses to complete the Hamline Plan, or they may choose to cluster their courses in one of two areas:

  • Global Orientation - prepares students to be engaged global citizens
  • Digital Worlds - prepares students to be engaged participants in digital cultures

Each course is listed with its cluster designation or major area.

Global Citizenship (one course):

Fine Arts (two courses):
