The Psychology Major
Students may declare a major in Psychology as incoming freshmen. All Psychology majors must maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA and earn grades of C- or better in all Psychology courses; no course in the major may be re-taken more than once. Typically, students complete PSY 201, 322, 350, and at least one elective course in Psychology by the end of the sophomore year. Those who initially get below a grade of C- in two of the following courses (PSY 201, 322, 350), or do not successfully complete a required Psychology course after a second attempt, will be dismissed from the major.
Majors must take a total of 12 courses in Psychology (and no more than 14), including required courses in General Psychology, Introductory Statistics, General Research Methods, and Senior Seminar, and successfully complete a Comprehensive Exam their senior year.
