To Our New Majors:
Welcome to Psychology!
As you map out your academic
plans for the coming year, here are some tips to help you take advantage
of the advising resources provided by the Department of Psychology. These
To learn more about the majors
we offer or for assistance planning your program, you should take advantage
of the various resources available to you via the Undergraduate
InfoPack --starting with the Program Planning
Tips page. Once you've familiarized yourself with this information,
you might want to consult a faculty advisor.
All faculty are happy to discuss the field of psychology with interested
students. You will find your faculty advisor assignment, along with suggestions
for how to prepare for a meeting with your faculty advisor, on the Faculty
Advisor web page.
Your Peer and Faculty Advisors will serve as important
contacts for psychology-related questions, including research opportunities,
fields of study, and post-graduation plans. Please note that Faculty and Peer Advisors
are not prepared to provide accurate or definitive answers to questions
about major requirements, transfer credit, or other administrative aspects
of the degree. For those issues we recommend that you contact
your Program Advisor or the Undergraduate Curriculum Assistant, in 406 Schermerhorn.
In addition to the contacts
you will forge in the Dept. of Psychology, it is equally important that
you maintain contact with your College or G.S. Advisor
during the next two years. They can assist you in many ways, including
answering questions about graduation requirements, study abroad, pre-professional
studies, special programs, and other academic planning needs outside of
your major and/or concentration.
Best of luck as you pursue
your studies in psychology!
The Faculty and Staff of the
Department of Psychology
