1Psychology majors take a minimum of five courses from the following list (“Core 8”) with at least one course in each group: Physiological Processes (PSYC 230 , PSYC 231 ), Learning Processes (PSYC 234 , PSYC 235 ), Social-Developmental Processes (PSYC 220 PSYC 227 ), and Individual Processes (PSYC 224 , PSYC 225 ).

2MATH 106 , MATH 109 , or MATH 114 .

3The Department strongly recommends SOC 110 .

4The selection of a First Year Seminar is likely to fulfill requirements for both the First Year Seminar and a General Education Requirement.  Thus, the First Year Seminar will probably not add to the total credits for the semester.  Talk with your advisor if you have any questions.

5One 3- or 4-credit NSCI Biology course and one additional 3- or 4-credit NSCI BIOL, CHEM or PHYS course.

6No more than 15 credits of Psychology can be placed in GE electives.
