Total: 123 Credits

1 MATH 103 , MATH 106 , or MATH 114 

2 The Department strongly recommends SOC 110  and WRTG 284 as preparation for psychology writing intensive courses (PSYC 330L , PSYC 335 , PSYC 360 , and PSYC 491 ).

3Sections of PSYC 330  & PSYC 330L  are taught by the same professor and must be taken together.

4 One 3- or 4-credit NSCI Biology course and one additional 3- or 4-credit NSCI BIOL, CHEM or PHYS course.

5 No more than 15 credits of Psychology can be placed in GE elective.

6 Entering fall-semester freshmen enrolled in the majors only PSYC 110  section must also enroll in PSYC 110L  .   PSYC 110L  is required only for entering fall-semester freshmen psychology majors.

7 The selection of a First Year Seminar is likely to fulfill requirements both for the First Year Seminar and a General Education Requirement.  Thus, the First Year Seminar will not add to the total credits for the semester.  Talk with your advisor if you have any questions.
