Return to Department of Psychology .

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in with a major in psychology requires a total of 36 credit hours in psychology, excluding those counted toward general curriculum requirements. At least two-thirds of these credit hours must be 3000- or 4000-level courses, and no more than 39 hours in psychology may be counted toward the degree. Psychology majors must earn a minimum grade of B in the four foundation courses. A senior project is also required. Options that satisfy this requirement include completing a one- or two-semester research capstone, taking a fifth core class, completing a 5000-level graduate course, or participating in a psychology practicum experience. Given that the major allows flexibility, students are strongly urged to work with their advisors to select courses in a meaningful order and in relation to their own career plans. However, majors are encouraged to take foundation courses as early as possible.
