Advising Course Plan - Psychology Major - Option 1

What follows is an example four-year plan for a first-time-in-college student. Other plans will work, too. It is critical, however, that by the end of the second year, you have successfully completed PSYC 101S, MATH 125Q, PSYC 203, at least one PSYC Elective, and preferably BIOL 121P. It is also critical that you start the research sequence of courses (PSYC 306Q, PSYC 498, and PSYC 499) sometime during the junior year. These courses must be taken sequentially.
