Supplemental Information for BA with a Major in Psychology

Students majoring in psychology must complete at least 34 hours of psychology, composed of the following 16-hour core: PSYC 1630, 1650, 3610, 3650 and 4600; plus 18 additional hours of psychology selected with and approved by a faculty adviser. For qualified students, a Senior Honors Thesis (PSYC 4950) is available.

Careful selection of these 18 hours and an accompanying 18-hour minor provides many major/minor combination possibilities directed toward preparation for (1) graduate training in the traditional psychology specialty areas, such as experimental, clinical, counseling, industrial, physiological, quantitative and school psychology; (2) application to dental, medical and law school; or (3) entry-level employment in such fields as accounting, advertising, aging, child development (nursery school), computer science, criminal justice, marketing, personnel, public relations, recreation, rehabilitation, social work, speech communication and technical writing.
