PSY 201, PSY 205, PSY 220, PSY 221, PSY 300, PSY 310, and PSY 450
*Note that most of these are taken as a sequence and, thus, you must plan five semesters to complete your required coursework.
Two Courses from PSY “A” electives (PSY 323, 327, 330, 335, and 350)
Two Courses from PSY “B” electives (PSY 363, 400, 408, 415, 423, 425, 436, and 444)
One Course from PSY “C” electives (PSY 305, 337, 352, 355, 380, 399, 403, 412, 413, 414, 430, 433, 460-499)
One additional psychology course from those listed above.
*Note some new courses may not be listed above. For example - Psychological Testing and Psychology of Emotion count as a "C" elective and Human Memory counts as a "B" elective. If you have questions about a particular course, ask your advisor or Ms. Carter in the Psychology Office.
**We recommend that you complete a practicum or research experience as part of your psychology degree, but it is not required. Practicums and research experience may be taken for credit as a PSY “C” elective, although you can volunteer for some experiences if you do not want to take them for course credit.
*Note this timetable is based on taking 16 credits per semester and not completing any remedial work. If you place into a remedial math or English course you will have to adjust timetable to allow for these additional courses.
**PSY elective courses are often offered in the summer to allow students more flexibility in scheduling. Required courses (especially 300-level and higher) are rarely ever offered in the summer, so do not count on this when planning your 4-year schedule.
* This timetable is appropriate for students who have already completed PSY 201 and all other courses required for an Associates Degree at a community college.
There are no specific minors that are suggested for psychology. For those students who want a competitive application for graduate school, typically minoring in math or science is preferred (e.g., Math, Computer Science, Biology). Other common minors include Gerontology, Child Development, Sociology, English, Technical Writing, Criminal Justice, Forensics, Political Science, and Music. If you want to go into Psychiatry, then you will also need to complete the Pre-Med curriculum.
