There are two options for the Psychology major: the General Major or the Intensive Major. Both majors share the same prerequisite courses, but differ in the upper-division required course work. Both sets of major requirements lead to the Bachelor of Arts degree. The Senior Comprehensive Requirement may be satisfied with an upper-division seminar.
The Minor in Psychology has the same lower-division requirements, but differs at the upper-division level. It does not require a Senior Comprehensive Requirement.
General Psychology Major
Twelve courses are required for the general major: five required prerequisite courses and eight upper-division elective courses. The prerequisite courses should be completed as early as possible, or by the end of the sophomore year. Additional information on the General Psychology Major may be found here.
Intensive Psychology Major
The intensive major is an option that any psychology major may choose to undertake. The intensive major would be advantageous for a student intending to go on to a graduate program in any area of psychology. Eighteen courses are required for the intensive major: five required prerequisite courses and thirteen additional upper-division courses. The prerequisite courses should be completed as early as possible, or by the end of the sophomore year. Additional information on the Intensive Psychology Major may be found here.
