PSY Academic Programs
The Psychology major offers four undergraduate B.S. degree tracks or concentrations, each consisting of 120 credits: General, Clinical-Counseling, Industrial-Organizational, and Paralegal Studies. The tracks help to prepare students better for subfields within psychology, giving students a sense of whether the area is a good fit for them personally. Specializing in a track does not, however, limit a student's career or graduate school opportunities as the degree being earned in all cases is a B.S. degree in psychology. Students in any track can later pursue careers or apply to graduate school within any field of psychology. Accordingly, selection of a track should depend upon interests, career goals, and graduation target date. All of the information about the major, possible tracks, courses, etc. is in the Psychology Student Handbook. A suggested course sequence sheet and advising guide are also available.
The Psychology minor is 18 credits and at least half of the PSY credits must be taken at KU. The handout for the Psychology minor is available online.
