Undergraduate Studies - Psychology Advising
PCD 4116

The Psychology Department maintains an office dedicated solely to advising undergraduates, both those students who are majoring in Psychology as well as those who are pursuing a minor. Our mission is to provide information and support that will enable students to achieve their academic goals. We want to be sure our students stay on track as they complete the requirements for their degree. To do this, we recommend students contact an advisor at least once each semester to discuss their progress and plan for future semesters. We can also discuss with students' plans for their futures, including careers in the discipline and post-graduate education. You should also take advantage of the many resources available to students at The Career Center. The Psychology major is primarily on-campus coursework. There are limited online courses available within the major after the completion of PSY 3213 Research Methods in Psychology. This major cannot be completed 100% online.

If you have a quick advising question that does not require a face-to-face meeting with an advisor, send an email to Please include your name and U-number in the email.
