Information for Current Undergraduate Students

The 45 units of core requirements provide a strong foundation from which students may go on to graduate school in psychology or a related discipline, or into jobs for which a degree in psychology provides a useful background (e.g., law school, MBA).

To assist our students in achieving a successful college experience, a Major Graduation Plan outlining courses required and the recommended sequence as well as the Five-Year Course Plan have been developed. We have specifically designed our curriculum so that it can realistically be completed in four years. With a little planning and keeping in touch with their advisor, a student should be able to accomplish this. This document is a projection of courses taught in future semester. 5 year course rotation

I am transferring from another school and I took courses that I think will count towards a minor. How do I know if these classes will articulate?

Complete the form https://forms.humboldt.edu/minor-declarationupdate and submit to the registrar’s office to declare a minor.

Preapproved courses will show up in your DARS as meeting the requirements. If a course does not show up, and you think it should count, email the department chair Dr. Tasha Howe at tasha.howe@humboldt.edu to review the courses. You will need to provide a course description or syllabus for the course that you are requesting to articulate.
