Welcome to Psychology!

We look forward to meeting you and learning how you envision the psychology major/minor helping you to achieve your professional and personal goals. The Office of Undergraduate Studies in Psychology will be your first stop for all your questions related to the program. The best way to reach us is to email the DUS.

Once declared, students will be assigned a faculty advisor by the Office of Undergraduate Studies. The assignments may be based on your interest in a particular area of psychology or a preference for a particular advisor. You may indicate your preferences by filling out an Advisor Request Form, however some advisors may not be available due a full roster or sabbatical leave. Advisor assignments may also be changed on a student's request or because of sabbatical leaves and other demands on faculty time. You can see the list of available advisors.

All psychology first majors (AB and BS) will have an assigned faculty advisor with whom they must meet at least once each semester in order to be cleared for enrollment. Second majors (AB2 and BS2) and minors will be advised through their first majors and not through psychology. However, all majors and minors are encouraged to reach out to us at DUS with any questions they have related to their degrees. You can also more about advising and find our FAQ page here.
