In addition to the general requirements, admission to the major requires completion of PSY 103 or its equivalent with a minimum grade of C. For the Bachelor of Arts with a major or minor in psychology, the general education requirements must be met. Psychology majors must not use psychology courses to fulfill the Social Sciences component of the University Studies requirement.
For the major, 30 semester hours, including PSY 103, 204, and 473, are required. In support of course work in psychology, majors are also required to take BIO 114 (or PSY 308 in the Adult Accelerated program), SS 305, and MATH 231. If a student has a second major, the minimum requirement in psychology is 24 hours. Transfer students must take at least half of the specified credit hours for the major at Spalding University.
For the minor, 18 semester hours, including PSY 103, PSY 204, and MATH 231 is required in support of the psychology minor.
Psychology majors are evaluated by the faculty at the completion of their program. The assessment includes a paper in which the student describes how psychological concepts, theory, principles, and research are applied in their practicum experience. A second component of the assessment is an evaluation of the student by the practicum site supervisor.
