The major in Psychology is designed for students who want to graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree and attend graduate or professional school, or enter the workforce in a variety of applied areas, including mental health, drug rehabilitation, business, industry, or human resources.
The major totals 45 hours and consists of the following courses:
Note(s): No more than nine upper-division hours may be taken prior to completing the 315 and 318 sequence with a grade of C or better. A grade of C or better is required for all psychology courses taken and a psychology course may be repeated only once. Psychology 480 must be taken the final year.
Following the American Psychological Association (APA) guidelines for ethical behavior is an essential part of training and education. Students are expected to follow the APA guidelines in all field work and research. If a student places the welfare of a patient, client, or research participant (human or animal) in jeopardy and is determined to be inappropriate or irresponsible, the student will be removed from the course, receive a failing grade for the course and additional disciplinary action may be taken (such as removal from the psychology program). In addition, all general education requirements for the B.S. Degree must be met.
