Pathways to Graduation

These sample program plans present an overview of courses that students majoring in Psychology must complete to obtain an undergraduate degree within either three or four years. Your program plan will differ, depending on previous credit received, your course schedule, available course offerings, and whether you choose to complete a Bachelors of Art or Science. We strongly encourage students to develop a personal program plan in consultation with an academic adviser.
