Declaring a Psychology Degree

  • Students who wish to declare psychology as a major or minor should go to Bartlett Hall, room 1078, to fill out necessary paperwork.
  • Only psychology courses with an earned grade of C- or higher will count toward the major, minors and certificates
  • It is possible for psychology majors to graduate with departmental honors if they have an overall GPA of  3.50 or higher and complete a research project deemed worthy of honors by the department. Generally such a project is done in the context of 3 hours of PSYCH 4705, Research Experience in Psychology.
  • Introduction to Psychology (PSYCH 1001) is a prerequisite for most psychology courses, and therefore must be taken by all majors and minors. It also fulfills Liberal Arts Core 5B.
