Bachelor of Arts
The psychology major provides all students an opportunity to investigate the science of behavioral and mental processes. Many of the courses stress a theoretical orientation while others will stress application in life situations.
The major integrates undergraduate education, teaching, research, and service activities to further the overall mission of the university in the Franciscan tradition of service, caring and openness to all.
Psychology majors are required to take two courses from the following: PSYC 352, 365, 400, 415; two courses from the following: PSYC 320, 325, 360, 380, 405 or 455; two courses from the following: PSYC 280, 350, 351 or 355; and one course from the following: PSYC 102, 205 or 310. They must then take four additional elective courses from all remaining 3-credit psychology courses.
An internship (PSYC 390/490) is strongly encouraged as an elective.
Students may not count more than one D/D+ toward their major or minor course work.
The department currently accepts only PSYC 110, 280 and 360 for transfer credit.
