Psychology is a liberal arts major that is a natural science, social science and health-care profession which seeks to stimulate intellectual curiosity, an appreciation for cultural diversity, an understanding of the scientific method, critical thinking, and effective communication skills through classroom, research, and practicum learning experiences. In addition to presenting a thorough grounding in the theories, methods and research findings of the discipline, the major in psychology provides students with technological and other skills applicable to the workplace and prepares students for graduate study.
Students may declare a major in psychology after completion of PSY 105 (with a ‘C” or better), a biology course chosen from BIO 105, BIO 140 (with laboratory), BIO 201, BIO 202 or BIO 240, and a mathematics course chosen from MAT 111, MAT 112, MAT 115, MAT 151, or higher level mathematics course. In addition, the student must attain a combined GPA on these three courses of at least a “C” (2.00).
