Psychology B.S.

Psychology
College of Liberal Arts
  • Program Type: Baccalaureate
  • Requirements for this program are current for Fall 2017
  • Required credits to graduate with this degree: 120
  • Required credits within the major: 54 to 61
  • Degree: Bachelor of Science
Psychology examines human behavior through environmental, genetic, physiological, and social determinants and correlates. The BS in psychology offers students rigorous scientific training in biological and quantitative psychology, complimented by a broad education in such related fields as neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science, biology, chemistry, and mathematics. This degree is intended to prepare students for graduate work in psychology, as well as in related fields such as cognitive science, neuroscience, and medicine. The BS degree in psychology emphasizes coursework in biological and quantitative/cognitive sciences. The biological courses are appropriate for students interested primarily in specializations such as the biological basis of psychopathology, the brain-behavior relation, evolutionary psychology, and behavior genetics. The quantitative/cognitive science courses are appropriate for students interested primarily in statistics and methods used in psychological research, in mathematical models of perception and cognition, and in psychological measurement. Students interested in the biological area are encouraged to choose heavily from outside foundation courses in the life sciences (e.g., biochemistry, biology, genetics and cell biology, evolution and behavior), whereas students focusing upon quantitative/cognitive science courses are encouraged to select more outside foundation courses in mathematics and the physical sciences (e.g., computer science, mathematics, physics, statistics). A psychology BS is a valuable and useful background for a variety of careers and graduate and professional academic programs. A professional career as a psychologist requires further training. Students completing the baccalaureate degree in psychology may not receive a second baccalaureate degree in child psychology.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Admission Requirements
Prospective majors are strongly encouraged to complete PSY 3801 (or a Department of Psychology approved equivalent transfer course) and two outside foundation cluster courses prior to formally declaring the major. To declare a major, students first complete the Online Declaration Module (http://cla.umn.edu/psychology/undergraduate/majors-minors/declare-your-major) and then schedule an appointment with a psychology advisor (psyadvis@umn.edu).
For information about University of Minnesota admission requirements, visit the Office of Admissions website.
General Requirements
All students in baccalaureate degree programs are required to complete general University and college requirements including writing and liberal education courses. For more information about University-wide requirements, see the liberal education requirements. Required courses for the major, minor or certificate in which a student receives a D grade (with or without plus or minus) do not count toward the major, minor or certificate (including transfer courses).
Program Requirements
CLA degrees require students to complete 48 credits of upper division coursework taken at the 3xxx, 4xxx, or 5xxx level. Transfer students must complete a minimum of 16 upper division psychology credits in the Department of Psychology at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities campus; 9 credits within the Outside Foundation Courses requirement must be completed at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities campus. Students may earn no more than one undergraduate degree in psychology: a BA or a BS or a minor. Students may combine the psychology BS with the child psychology minor, but not with the child psychology BA or BS. CLA freshmen must complete the First Year Experience course sequence.
