B.A. in Psychology Track Map

B.A. Track

This is a suggested plan of study for those students undertaking the B.A. track in Psychology.

In order to satisfy the requirements for the B.A. track, students must take (at some point prior to graduation):

  • All courses denoted as Required
  • Four courses from the B.A. electives
  • One course from the B.S. electives and;
  • Either complete a senior thesis (PSYC 443) or internship (PSYC 495)
  • We also request that students successfully pass the Departmental APA Online Training (This is usually administered in one of the 200-level developmental courses (PSYC 205, 206, or 207) and should be successfully completed before proceeding onto any 300-level courses; If a student is a transfer student coming in at the 300-level, he or she must meet with his/her advisor to make arrangements to complete this before the end of his/her first semester in the major).
