Psychology encompasses a range of phenomena and levels of analysis in pursuit of three goals: to deepen our understanding of cognitive and neural mechanisms of sensation, perception, learning and emotion; to probe the biological and evolutionary foundations of animal behavior; and to clarify the social perception and assessment of individuals and groups. In contrast to the other concentrations in this department, the Psychology concentration places the greatest emphasis on understanding human and animal behavior at different levels of analysis – biological, neural, evolutionary, cognitive, developmental, and social. Students choosing this concentration are often interested in clinical and mental health issues, and will be well prepared for careers in medicine, law, education, business administration, as well as both clinical and experimental psychology. AP and Transfer Credits: Please refer to our departmental policy on applying AP and transfer credits. Non-concentrators who wish to receive transfer credit for CLPS courses should submit their transfer forms to Prof. Amso. CLPS concentrators should see their assigned concentration advisor for transfer credit. The A.B. and Sc.B. Concentrations in Psychology have several features in common. Both require Introductory Psychology (or AP equivalent), a Quantitative Methods course, six core courses from three broad areas (Perception & Cognition, Comparative/Physiological, and Social/Personality/ Developmental), a laboratory course, and an advanced seminar. The requirements specific to the A.B. Concentration include two elective courses that complement the student's main area of interest in Psychology. In all, the A.B. Concentration requires 12 courses. At least 6 of these courses must be taken at Brown; these courses must include at least 3 in the core distribution, a seminar, and a lab. The requirements specific to the Sc.B. Concentration include six supporting science courses and a Directed Research course that involves one semester of independent research under the supervision of a faculty advisor in Psychology. The Sc.B. requires a total of 17 courses. At least 8 of these courses must be taken at Brown; these courses must include at least 3 in the core distribution, a seminar, a lab, and directed research. This program based on Social/Personality/ Developmental.
