Psychology Courses

All psychology majors and minors take a group of basic core courses. In addition, they have the opportunity to plan their own individualized program of study. In consultation with their faculty advisor, they will take courses best suited to their particular interests and future goals. They retain the freedom to decide their own course of study and, of course, the ultimate responsibility for their decisions.

The major in psychology consists of 45 hours (15 courses) beyond general education.
