Bachelor of Science - Psychology Sample Sequencing Plan (2010-2011)

Shown below is a sample sequence of courses for your degree. If you follow this plan, you should be able to graduate in four years, provided you complete five courses per semester. This is just one example of how you could complete your major and degree requirements; you may find that a different sequence works as well as this one.

See the UofL Calendar and/or the Program Planning Guide for details regarding program requirements.

1 Although Psychology 1000 is normally the first Psychology course taken, it is not required if the first course taken is either Neuroscience 2600 (for which the prerequisite is one of Psychology 1000 or Biology 1010) or Psychology 2700 (for which the prerequisite is one of Biology 1020 or a previous course in Psychology or Neuroscience). Please note: if you choose Biology 1010 or Biology 1020 in Fall, Year One, you need to include one additional Psychology course to meet the minimum 13 required for the major.
Note: Students who choose to do a B.Sc. will emphasize Neuroscience and Psychology courses which are on the Science list (see the 2010/2011 Calendar, Part 7, Section 20, p. 112 and Part 4, Section 11, List III: Science Courses, p. 87).
