1Entering 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.

2MATH 103 , MATH 106 , or MATH 114 .

3 The Department strongly recommends SOC 110 .

4The 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.

5Sections of PSYC 330  & PSYC 330L  are taught by the same professor and must be taken together.

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

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

*An approved 3- credit EP Foundation Course may be substituted for COMM 100 and C/IL 102-C/IL 104.  In this case, the total needed for graduation in this major may be reduced.  Consult with your advisor, if you have questions.
