Psychology Department Undergraduate Handbook

The Psychology Department does not have a minimum grade criterion for counting a course toward any of its five majors; a passing grade is what is required. There is no minor in Psychology. A minor in CBS and a minor in Linguistics are available; both programs are administered by the Department of Philosophy.
