Additional Information

  1. A psychology major offers liberal arts students considerable depth and breadth of exposure to disciplined inquiry into human and animal behavior. A major in psychology can provide a strong foundation for professional training or graduate study in psychology. However, the undergraduate degree alone is not sufficient training for a career in psychology.
  2. In general, students interested in graduate training in psychology should gain a broad background in psychology rather than concentrate in any one area. Research experience via Psychology 693 is also highly valuable and strongly encouraged. The prerequisite for Psychology 693 is 14 credit hours of psychology (including Psych 100). Not more than six credit hours of Psychology 693 may be applied toward the 48 hours required for the major. However, many students choose to earn more than six credits of 693 research experience.
  3. The total number of 693 credit hours awarded for pre approved (by the Advising Office), psychology related, community service activities will be limited to four hours. A short reaction paper (two pages typed). describing the students' impressions of their volunteer activities is required in the eighth week of the quarter. Please see the Advising Office for registration information regarding this opportunity.  
  4. Students who pursue research in the department may also participate in the Department of Psychology Undergraduate Research Colloquium and the university-wide undergraduate research colloquium held during spring quarter.
