CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE WITH A MAJOR IN PSYCHOLOGY IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

On page 261, in the section DEGREES, make the following changes:

Psychology

Major:
Twenty-eight semester hours of psychology, including Psychology 301 and 418, each with a grade of at least C, and at least eighteen semester hours of upper-division coursework. Also included in these twenty-eight semester hours must be at least [two three-semester-hour courses in area I, biological/human experimental psychology, and at least two three-semester-hour courses in area II, social/personality psychology; a] one three-semester-hour course in each of four areas:

I.
Clinical/social psychology
II.
Cognition/language
III.
Developmental/evolutionary psychology
IV.
Neuroscience/perception

A list of the courses in each area is available in the Department of Psychology Undergraduate Office.

Psychology majors must earn a grade of at least C in Psychology 418 to register for upper-division psychology courses. Students may not enroll in Psychology 418 more than twice.

Psychology 357 and 359 are offered on the pass/fail basis only; they may not be counted toward the twenty-eight hours in psychology required for the major.

Minor for psychology majors: Twelve semester hours, including at least nine hours of upper-division coursework, in any one other field of study in the University. Six of the twelve hours must be taken in residence. No more than three of the twelve hours may also be counted toward any area requirement for the degree.

Rationale: To better reflect the subdivisions as they have been developed in Psychology in recent years. Thus we propose a change from a two- to a four-area course structure.
