The Department of Psychology offers training for individuals interested in combining a major in psychology with a variety of career areas. Careful selection of courses required to complete a major in psychology along with an accompanying 18-hour minor from another field provide the following possibilities: (1) graduate training in such specialty areas of psychology as experimental, clinical, counseling, quantitative, health psychology/behavioral medicine, physiological; (2) application to dental, medical and law schools; or (3) entry-level employment in such fields as advertising, gerontology, child development/child care, computer science, criminal justice, marketing, recreation, rehabilitation, social work and technical writing. Other areas also are available upon consultation with an advisor.

Programs of study

Programs offered by the department are listed below. The Bachelor of Science with a major in psychology is primarily for those students planning to enter a graduate program in psychology leading to a PhD degree. It requires the completion of Introduction to Psychological Measurement (PSYC 3630 ) and Honors Thesis (PSYC 4950 ).

Graduation requirements

The following are graduation requirements for the psychology major, over and above those course requirements stated in the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science paragraphs below:

  1. Once the psychology major has been applied for and approved, a GPA of 2.5 in all psychology courses must be maintained in order for the student to graduate with a psychology major. If the psychology GPA falls below 2.5, additional psychology courses must be taken and passed with high enough grades to retain a 2.5 GPA to graduate as a psychology major.
  2. Psychology majors must earn a grade of C or better for any psychology courses used in the degree.
