Major and Minor Calculation for the Department of Psychology
In order to earn a minor or a major in psychology, students must have a minimum GPA of 2.0 across all of their psychology courses.
Minor and major GPAs are based on the grades earned in all psychology classes taken at Converse University.
Transfer credits from other institutions do not figure into the required calculation for minor or major GPAs.
The major must consist of at least 31 credit hours. Students may choose an optional Clinical concentration, which requires 16 credits.
Students preparing for graduate study are advised to enroll in as many psychology courses as University regulations will permit.
Additional Psychology Electives
Clinical Concentration Option
Students wishing to complete a clinical concentration as part of their psychology major will need to complete four electives that specifically focus on clinical/counseling skills. These electives may also count for the general major electives.
