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.

Studying Psychology
Psychology is an interdisciplinary program that examines both the social and scientific bases of behavior, and as a premier research institution, UC Davis is home to many leading researchers in the field. In humans, animals and computer models, and from neurons to relationships to cultures, the science of psychology is focused on understanding how, when and why we do what we do. Psychology majors from UC Davis are prepared to enter fields such as business, government or personnel work, or to pursue higher levels of education.
