Department of Psychology 

The major in Psychology requires a minimum of 38 semester hours including a 26-hour core (with a grade of C- or above) plus 12 additional hours of psychology electives (at least 9 hours upper division). To meet the Mathematics General Education requirement, Psychology majors must take MATH 1710  or MATH 1730 . Two minors are required. Students may choose a psychology minor offered by the department, but this is not required. At least one minor, however, must be from outside the department. The specific interests and career goals of each student determine the remainder of the program.

The curriculum is arranged to provide familiarity with scientific bases of psychology for students preparing for careers in a variety of professions; the knowledge and skills necessary for graduate work in psychology; and the academic preparation and technical skills for students who plan to work in health-related, business and/or research settings after completing their undergraduate work.
