PSYCHOLOGY PROGRAM

The university awards the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in psychology to the student who completes the curriculum below. This curriculum is designed with two goals in mind:

  • (1) to provide a strong liberal arts education which prepares students for a variety of careers and
  • (2) to provide an adequate foundation of psychological knowledge and skills to those students who wish to pursue advanced degrees in psychology or related areas.

A minimum grade of C is required in ENGL 101, 102; MATH 101, and all psychology courses used to fulfill requirements of the major. The structure of the program leading to a bachelor’s degree in Psychology is hierarchical i.e., many of the required courses are sequenced and must be completed in the appropriate order. Core courses (Psychology 208, 209, 305, 309, 312, and 401) must be completed at Nicholls State University. Each student majoring in psychology must complete requirements for a minor in another field. This minor must be selected from those described in the university Catalog; the minor may not be selected from any area of teacher education.

Minor

Students who are not majoring in0 Psychology may complete a minor in the field by earning 21 semester hours of credit as follows: PSYC 101; 204 or 211; 208 or 301 or 302 or 402, and 12 hours of electives in Psychology.

NOTE: Students majoring in a teacher education program are not allowed to select a minor in psychology.
