Concentration: Clinical Psychology
This major is intended for students interested in entering graduate or
professional school in mental health or human services and/or wanting to
work with psychiatric patients after graduation.
Students who score 4 or 5 on the Psychology AP test place into
two-digit psychology courses and may skip PSY 1. Please note that
the Psychology AP does not translate into a University credit (that
is, it does not count toward the 34 credits needed to graduate). A
score of 5 completely substitutes for PSY 1 within the clinical
major, meaning that students need only 7 required courses as listed
above to complete the major. Clinical majors with an AP score of 4
place out of PSY 1 but must take an additional psychology elective
in lieu of it for the major. Successful completion of Child
Development 1 is treated the same way as an AP score of 4.
The requirements are as follows:
- Eight Required Courses:
- Two Elective Psychology Courses:
A student majoring in clinical psychology must take two electives,
one of which must be a 100-level (and no more than one of which may
be independent study).
For information see courses listed under Psychology.
- Two Related Field Courses:
Two related field courses must be taken in order to complete the major requirements.
For more information see courses listed under Related Fields.
