1. Psychology Requirements

2. Liberal Studies Requirements

  1. Basic Requirements
  2. Goal Courses
     a. The Arts
     b. Global Community
     c. Human Institutions and Interpersonal Relationships
     d. Science, Technology & Math

  3. Enrichment Courses

     c. Human Institutions and Interpersonal Relationships
     d. Science, Technology & Math
  4. Computer Competency 

In addition to these, there are requirements that you take certain numbers of classes in the 300 or 400 range, etc.  These are requirements that you need to be mindful of as you consider classes.

Psychology courses:
Although there are more requirements to the program that you will need to work on with your advisor, these guidelines will get you started.

1. If you have not taken Introduction to Psychology (PSYC 105) at the college level, you will need to register for this right away.  Note: If you earned below a C in your Introduction to Psychology class, it will not transfer in and you will need to take it at SRU before you can take any other Psychology classes.

2. The next class you need to take is Introduction to Behavioral Statistics (PSYC 221), which is also required for all Psychology Majors.  You also need to earn a grade of C or higher in this class in order to progress in the program.

3.If you have taken both of these classes (and earned grades of C or higher), you should register for Introduction to Experimental Psychology (PSYC 325) with Experimental Psychology Laboratory (PSYC 326).  You will need to receive a grade of C or higher in both of these in order to progress in the program.

4. In addition, the following classes can be taken before or at the same time as Introduction to Behavioral Statistics or Introduction to Experimental Psychology:

For those who have Freshman or Sophomore Standing:

  • Personality (PSYC 208)
  • Introduction to Abnormal Psychology (PSYC 276)
  • Sensation and Perception (PSYC 233)

For those who have Junior or Senior Standing:

  • Drugs and Behavior (PSYC 321)
  • Developmental Psychology (PSYC 344)
  • History of Psychology (PSYC 360)
  • Social Psychology (PSYC 377)
