The Psychology Department offers three major courses of study. These lead to a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology, a B.A. in Psychology with a specialization in mental health, or a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Psychology with a specialization in research. Students with the appropriate prerequisites may take offerings from any specialization, including field practicum and data gathering courses. The degree offers preparation for graduate training in all areas of psychology, meeting the basic entrance requirements of M.A., Ph.D., and Psy.D. programs.

You can declare Psychology as their major at any time, but you will need to be accepted into the major in order to graduate with a degree in Psychology.  The requirements for acceptance are:
        - at least 39 credits overall;
        - an overall GPA of at least 2.70;
        - at least two Psychology courses at the 200-level or higher with a grade of at least B-.

The major requirements were revised in Fall 2012. Students who started at SCSU before Fall 2012 follow the "Old" requirements. Students who transferred to SCSU between Fall 2012 and Fall 2013 should go to "Which Requirements Do I Follow?" to determine which requirements to follow; the decision is based on the first semester at SCSU and the number of transfer credits.
