Admission/Graduation Requirements

Requirements for graduation with a psychology major are:

  • Psychology majors and minors must obtain grades of "C" (2.0) or higher in psychology courses in order for the courses to count toward graduation in the major. If a grade lower than a "C" (2.0) is received in a psychology course, the student may elect to retake the course (limited to one retake).

  • Psychology majors and minors must receive a grade of "C" (2.0) or higher in any courses which are prerequisites for another course.

  • External prerequisite courses that must be passed with a grade of "C" (2.0) or higher are:

    1. English 101 or 110 or WBIS 188.

    2. Any PBIS or math course that meets the BA requirement (PBIS   187, 188,189 or Math 109), or Math 104 (or placement at a level higher  than Math104 via the placement exam), Math 108, 204, or any Level II  mathematics/statistics/computer science course except for Psychology  203, that meets the BS requirement.  

    3. Any two laboratory science courses that meet BA or BS requirements.


Those students seeking Wisconsin teacher certification must earn a minimum grade point average of 3.00 in all courses required for their majors and minors in order to meet the requirements of the College of Education and Human Services.
