Total (30 cr.)

Students must also complete the general requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences.

Recommended. In addition to meeting departmental and general requirements, the department suggests that psychology majors take supporting courses in mathematics and the natural sciences. We recommend the following courses for all majors: Introductory Biology and Introductory Chemistry. It is also important to obtain a broadly based education in the humanities, social sciences, and fine arts. Students should not concentrate all their electives in psychology or any other single subject area. Courses such as logic, philosophy, sociology, chemistry, and computer science are especially appropriate. Prospective psychology students and/or majors are invited to discuss their interests with any member of the psychology faculty.
