Requirements for the Psychology Major

Changes to the requirements for the Psychology Major took effect on May 26, 2014. All students entering UW–Milwaukee (or any UW System school) beginning Summer 2014, will follow the new requirements for the Psychology major. Current students may choose EITHER the new curriculum, or the old curriculum. The biggest change is that the new curriculum requires one, not two, advanced laboratory courses. The other major change is that students may now choose between a BA and a BS.
