This handbook was developed by the faculty of the B.A. Program in Psychology to assist you, the undergraduate major in Psychology, in planning your course of study and anticipating careers which may suit your interests and skills.
We hope that you will find it useful as an overview of our Department and the courses we provide, and as a source of answers to some of the most common questions students have about the major in Psychology.
