Computer Science and Psychology is an interdepartmental major designed for students interested in integrating work in these two fields. Each area provides tools and theories that can be applied to problems in the other. Examples of this interaction include cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and biological perception. The prerequisite for the major is PSYC 110, from which students who have scored 5 on the Advanced Placement test in Psychology are exempt. Beyond the prerequisite, the major requires fourteen term courses as well as a senior project. Eight of the fourteen courses must be in computer science: CPSC 201, 202, 223, 323, 365, and three advanced computer science courses in artificial intelligence (e.g., CPSC 470, 471, 473, or 475). MATH 244 may substitute for CPSC 202. CPSC 480 and 490 may not be counted as one of these courses. The remaining six courses must be in psychology, including PSYC 200, at least one from PSYC 210?299, at least two Psychology courses from the social science point of view, and at least one course in cognitive psychology or cognitive science listed in Psychology. Courses in the range PSYC 490?499 may not be counted toward this requirement. At least one of the two psychology courses from the social science point of view must be designated as Core in the course listings. A second course in cognitive psychology or cognitive science may substitute for one of the courses in artificial intelligence. An additional course in psychology and an examination arranged with the instructor of PSYC 200 may substitute for PSYC 200.
