The undergraduate major in Psychology can be declared following completion of General Psychology. At least four semesters are normally required to complete the program of courses required for the major. The program is built around a set of core courses in Statistics, Research Methodology, Physiological Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Foundations of Modern Psychology, and the Seminar in Professional Development.
In addition, elective courses such as Developmental Psychology, Social Psychology, Personality, Perception, Human Factors, Cross-Cultural Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Clinical and Counseling Psychology, Industrial/Organizational Psychology, and Animal Learning and Cognition are offered routinely.
Special topics courses, such as Psychology of Women, Positive Psychology, Health Psychology, The Self, Forensic Psychology, Moral Psychology and Values, and Critique of ESP are frequently available. While our program is designed to offer broad training in the foundations of modern psychology, the wide range of elective courses, including opportunities for involvement in research and internships, allows students a range of choices that permits them to tailor the program to their interests and to fit their plans for post-graduate education and/or employment.
