A student must declare the psychology major after completion of the above three courses. For graduation, students must have a 2.5 average in all psychology major requirements. A course in which a student receives a grade below a “CD” will not be counted toward the major or minor. If a student repeats a course, the better grade will be counted toward the GPA for purposes of admission to the major, graduation and inclusion in the minor. Transfer course grades will be counted toward the GPA for purposes of admission to the major.
A minimum of three courses toward the major and two courses toward the minor must be taken at Edgewood College.
For the psychology minor and each psychology concentration, the courses required are listed in the catalog. There is no minimum number of credits. Students need to complete the required courses for the major or concentration. For the psychology minor, five courses in psychology are required, which must include General Psychology or the equivalent transfer course.
