Department of Psychology

The Department of Psychology offers an undergraduate degree in Psychology that has been designed to provide students with a liberal arts education that emphasizes the biological, individual, social, and cultural aspects of behavior and mental processes. A concentration in biopsychology is also offered. The bachelor's degree prepares students for graduate and professional studies, as well as careers in various employment settings. To achieve these objectives, students are required to complete the University College Core Curriculum and at least 47 credit hours of course work in Psychology. In addition to the major courses, students have the option to complete a minor or a set of free elective courses. The department also offers an on-line degree completion (ODC) program; a student must first complete all University College Core requirements in order to qualify for the ODC program. Transfer students are eligible to be in the ODC program if their transfer credits fulfill FSU's University Core requirements. Please see the Department of Psychology website for more information.
