A B.S. in psychology requires 45 or 46 course credit hours (15 courses). Prior to declaring a Bachelor of Science with a major in psychology, students must complete the four-course foundation sequence of PSYC 1300 , PSYC 3301 , PSYC 4301 , and STAT 2331 . An approved alternate analysis course may be substituted for STAT 2331 with departmental permission. The foundation courses must be completed with a C or higher on the first attempt in order to declare the B.S. degree.
Research training, practicum, and independent study courses are available (PSYC 3099 , PSYC 3199 , PSYC 3299 , PSYC 3399 , and PSYC 4395 ) on a pass/fail basis. These courses will not count toward the required advanced elective hours for the major. To earn the B.S. degree, students must earn a C- or higher in all breadth and elective classes and have a major GPA of 2.5.
