Undergraduate students must complete a set of three courses - Introduction to Psychology, Introduction to Statistics, and Research Design and Experimental Methodology - earning a grade of C or higher in each, plus earn an overall grade point average of 2.0 or higher in order to be admitted to the Psychology major program. Students then take a series of upper division substantive courses, culminating in a capstone History and Systems course.
Graduate students have three options for graduate degree: a two-year MA in General/Experimental Psychology, a two-year MA in Applied Behavior Analysis, and a three-year EdS, with a focus on School Psychology.
