Majors and minors

It is important that students consult early with departmental advisers, particularly if their plan is to continue their education in graduate school.

To be admitted into the psychology major students need to have taken at least 11 credits in psychology and have a 2.50 GPA overall at SCSU. Transfer students should meet with a Psychology Department adviser as soon as possible. In order to graduate, students need at least 15 psychology credits in residence and have achieved at least a 2.50 GPA in psychology.

This major requires either one year in a single foreign language OR a minor.
