College of Arts & Sciences
Curriculum

Bachelor of Science (B.S.)

Students pursuing the psychology B.S. complete the B.S. Core in the College of Arts and Sciences. Additionally, they must complete two laboratory courses within the psychology major. Further, they take PSYC 5113 instead of PSYC 5111; this version of the Seminar capstone course is more rigorous, requiring an APA-style research proposal rather than an APA-style literature review. Although B.A. students are required to take MATH 1202, this is not a requirement for B.S. students, so that they can satisfy the math requirement for the B.S., (i.e., 2 math courses at 1400 or higher or 1 math course at 1400 or higher and CSAS 1113 or 1114).
