1.0.0 Introduction 1.1.0 Background The Department of Psychology is a program in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSOS). It is an undergraduate major that studies human behavior as well as the behavior of other living organisms. It also studies the biological and environmental factors that impact these behaviors. The Department revolves around quantitative methods and research. The Psychology program branches into two sections; one of which lends itself to the biological characteristics of behavior, and the other of which lends itself to the environmental factors of behavior. Students who choose to pursue the former of these branches are guided towards a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree while those who choose to pursue the latter are guided towards a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree. This proposal will focus on the pathway to a BA degree. The requirements for the Psychology Limited Enrollment Program (LEP) Admission and for the Psychology Undergraduate Program recently changed in Fall 2009. These new requirements pertain to: - Freshmen Direct Admits - Transfer Admission Requirements - Course Requirements - Audit of Degree Requirements These requirements do not apply to those students admitted to the program prior to Fall 2009. Those students may continue to follow the old requirements. These requirements include the series of Introductory Psychology, Mathematics, and Lab Science course required for Academic Review (APR). They also include a completion of at least 11 Psychology courses totaling to a minimum of 35 credits. Degree Components Advising Resources BSOS Advising Department Advising
