General university degree requirements stipulate that 1) at least four units of the major be taken in residence at Puget Sound; 2) students earn a GPA of 2.0 in courses taken for the major; and 3) all courses taken for a major must be taken for graded credit. Any exceptions to these stipulations are indicated in the major degree requirements listed below.
The Psychology Department does not offer a Minor in Psychology.
Non-majors who are interested in psychology and who would like guidance in selecting courses are encouraged to speak to any member of the department. For students interested in a concentration in psychology, taking PSYC 201 is recommended, since this course is a prerequisite for 300-level psychology classes. Non-majors who are interested in applying to graduate school in psychology or a related field (such as neuroscience or special education) are strongly encouraged to speak with a psychology faculty member early on regarding their course selections.
