Psychology (PSY) - (ARCHIVE)

PROFESSOR KEITH CRNIC, Head

This major is designed for students who want to learn about behavior, normal and abnormal, how it is studied, and its relation to applied areas. Students are encouraged to conduct research with members of the faculty and/or take a practicum in an applied setting. Graduates are equipped for various positions in human service agencies, industrial settings, or laboratories. Others go on to professional school, e.g., medical school, law school, or to continue their training in psychology working toward a master's or a doctoral degree. Majors may elect either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science program. The B.S. degree program requires more course work in the sciences than the B.A. program, and students may select courses from one of four areas--mathematics/computer science, statistics, business, or biology--which may be taken instead of a foreign language.

For the B.A. degree in Psychology, a minimum of 124 credits is required.

For the B.S. degree in Psychology, a minimum of 127 credits is required.

PSYCHOLOGY MINOR: Students must take PSY 002 GS(3), 201(3), and select additional courses (at least 6 credits at the 400 level) in PSY for a total of 18 credits.
