The B.S. degree is designed for students oriented toward the natural sciences and mathematics. Students consult with their faculty advisers to select the degree program most appropriate to their interests and goals.
Candidates for a Bachelor of Science in Psychology must successfully complete 120 credit hours as indicated in the suggested curriculum below. Technical Electives exclude mathematics courses below the 2000 level.
The undergraduate psychology majors are designed to allow students to customize their coursework to meet their specific interests and needs. Coursework within the psychology major includes a 21-hour psychology core and an additional 30-hour psychology concentration that includes courses in psychology and other areas that are deemed appropriate to the students’ intellectual goals and interests in psychology. The concentration must be approved by the undergraduate program chair.
A list of concentrations and related courses follow the undergraduate psychology program plans in this section.
Courses are offered in the department to facilitate several concentrations: animal learning and behavior, clinical/counseling psychology, forensic psychology, industrial/organizational psychology, neuropsychology, and social-cultural psychology. In special cases, students may also design their own concentrations appropriate to pursuing postgraduate education in law, medical fields, business and the experimental fields of psychology. Students are encouraged to pursue minors in other disciplines, such as business administration, communication or biology.
