Interested in double-majoring with Cognitive Science and Psychology? Restrictions with double-counting upper-division courses will require special consideration in your academic planning. We have provided sample academic plans for this below and recommend Drop-in Advising with a Peer Advisor for assistance with a double-major plan for Cognitive Science & Psychology.

Please utliize Drop-in Advising with a Peer Advisor if you have any questions about major requirements, want a graduation check to confirm your progress in the major and remaining requirements, need assistance with a personal academic plan, or need help choosing a major or Catalog. You can find the schedule and instructions to access Drop-in Advising on the Undergraduate Advising page.

A note about choosing a Catalog for Psychology

If you have already declared the Psychology major and are unsure which Catalog you are following, you can find the term you declared in your UCSC portal (follow the instructions to find it here). If you have not yet declared the Psychology major, you will choose your Catalog when petitioning to declare following these guidelines:

  • Students who entered UCSC as frosh in Fall 2020 or later terms must choose the 2020 Catalog when petitioning to declare the Psychology major.
  • Students who entered UCSC as frosh in Fall 2019 may choose the 2019 or 2020 Catalogs when petitioning to declare the Psychology major.
  • Transfer students and students who entered UCSC as frosh before Fall 2019 may choose any Catalog listed below when petitioning to declare the Psychology major.
  • The only difference between the 2019 & 2020 Catalogs, is that PSYC 20 is required for students declared on the 2020 Catalog. PSYC 20 is recommended for students declared on earlier Catalogs, but not required.

How to declare the double-major: When pursuing a double-major with Cognitive Science and Psychology, students will declare either Cognitive Science or Psychology first, then add the second major at a later date. As soon as you are eligible to declare one major, you can follow the instructions to declare your FIRST major in the "Declare a Major" section of the Undergraduate Advising page. If you are already declared in Cognitive Science or Psychology and are eligible to declare your second major, follow the instructions to submit a SECOND major request.
