Psychology Major

Students who are planning to major or minor in psychology should consult with a department faculty member as early in their college careers as possible. 

Psychology majors are encouraged strongly to obtain additional experience outside of the classroom through internships, conducting research or studying abroad.

NOTE: Students with a neuroscience major may not double-major or minor in psychology.
