Department of Psychology at Illinois State University
A minimum grade point average of 2.5 is required for admission to the Major in Psychology for current Illinois State students. Admission is competitive.
Students who have been admitted to the Major in Psychology and have taken PSY 110 Fundamentals of Psychology or an equivalent course are required to complete one additional hour of elective psychology courses. This additional hour is due to the increase from three to four hours for PSY 111 Introduction to Psychology.
Enrollment in PSY 215 Educational Psychology is limited to only Education majors. (Effective May 2004)
PSY 327 is now called Cultural Psychology (formerly Topics in Diversity).
PSY 351 is now called Introduction to Clinical Counseling (formerly Clinical Applications).
(Effective May, 2012)
