The degree of Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science is conferred on all students who complete this program. Students whose major concentration is applied mathematics, applied physics, astrophysics, biochemistry, biology, biopsychology, chemical physics, chemistry, cognitive and brain Sciences, computer science, engineering psychology, environmental studies (as second major only), geological sciences, geology, mathematics, and physics are eligible to receive a Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree. Those majoring in psychology, psychology/clinical and quantitative economics may choose to receive the degree of Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts at the time they complete their degree sheet. Students in all other majors will receive a Bachelor of Arts degree. Students whose multiple majors make them eligible for either a Bachelor of Arts degree or a Bachelor of Science degree may choose between the two when completing their degree sheet. This major is intended for students interested in entering graduate or professional school in mental health or human services and/or wanting to work with psychiatric patients after graduation. Students who score 4 or 5 on the Psychology AP test place into two-digit psychology courses and may skip PSY 1. Please note that the Psychology AP does not translate into a University credit (that is, it does not count toward the 34 credits needed to graduate). A score of 5 completely substitutes for PSY 1 within the clinical major, meaning that students need only 7 required courses as listed above to complete the major. Clinical majors with an AP score of 4 place out of PSY 1 but must take an additional psychology elective in lieu of it for the major. Successful completion of Child Development 1 is treated the same way as an AP score of 4. The requirements are as follows: Eight Required Courses: Psychology 1 - Introduction to Psychology Psychology 12 - Abnormal Psychology Psychology 31 - Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences Psychology 38 - Research Methods in Clinical Psychology Psychology 71 - Clinical Methods Psychology 106 - Seminar in Clinical Psychology Psychology 181 - Senior Capstone in Clinical Psychology Psychology 182 - Senior Capstone in Clinical Psychology Two Elective Psychology Courses: A student majoring in clinical psychology must take two electives, one of which must be a 100-level (and no more than one of which may be independent study). For information see courses listed under Psychology. Two Related Field Courses: Two related field courses must be taken in order to complete the major requirements.
