The following changes in the Psychology BA degree requirements will become effective for Fall 2006.

Two required courses have been added:

  1. Psychology 1000, Careers in Psychology (1 credit)
  2. Psychology 4999, Integrated Psychology (2 credits)

There are also new distribution requirements. Students must now take one course from each of the following three areas:

Although these new requirements only apply to students (transfer and first time freshmen) who are admitted to UM-St. Louis in the Fall of 2006 or after, we encourage all psychology majors to choose courses that meet these new requirements.

Psychology 4999 is a particularly important course for preparing students for the exit exam and the Graduate Record Exam Advanced Test in Psychology.
