Catalog 2015-2016 > College of Social Sciences, Mathematics and Education > Department of Psychology > Four-Year Degree Plan for Major in Psychology, B.S.
Note that this is a sample four-year plan. There are other course sequences that will allow a student to graduate within four years as long as prerequisite courses are taken in the proper sequence. This sample plan does not guarantee course availability, and adjustments to students’ plans may be necessary if they are unable to take specific courses during specific semesters. Students who are placed into lower level FYW, MAT or other prerequisite courses will need to adjust their four-year plans accordingly. Similarly, students who bring in Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment or transfer credit for courses will need to adjust their four-year plans. A minimum of a 2.0 GPA both overall and in the major is required for graduation. In addition to major requirements, all components of the Baccalaureate Experience must be completed in order to successfully graduate.
Total Credit Hours: 124
In addition to the required courses listed above, students must take a minimum of 24 hours in psychology that includes 20 hours of 300-400 level courses (at least one course at the 400 level, but not 499). The specific courses chosen for the major must fill the emphasis requirements as described in the UT catalog. Many courses have prerequisites, which are listed in the Course Descriptions chapter of this catalog.
