1 WINONA STATE UNIVERSITY PROPOSAL FOR A REVISED PROGRAM This form is to be used to submit a proposal for a revised undergraduate or graduate major, minor, concentration, or option. Every item on this form must be completed prior to submission to A2C2 for the proposal to be considered for approval. The department proposing a new program must include a Financial and Staffing Data Sheet and the New and Revised Course and Program Approval Form with department chairperson s and dean s signatures. Refer to Regulation 3-4, Policy for Changing the Curriculum, for complete information on submitting proposals for curricular changes Note: Regulation 3-4, Policy for Changing the Curriculum, allows a department, with its dean s approval, to change up to two courses per year within an existing major, minor, concentration, option, etc., without seeking review of A2C2 and/or graduate Council, provided that (1) the total credits do not increase or decrease for the major, minor, concentration, option, etc., and (2) the change does not affect other departments or the University Studies or General Education Programs. Please use the Notification form for these changes instead of this Proposal for a Revised Program. Department: PSYCHOLOGY Title of Program: PSYCHOLOGY B.A. MAJOR -- OPTION A (requires a minor) This is a revised X Major Minor Concentration X Option Other (explain) Major/Minor Code of this program PSYA Total Semester Hours Current: 35 Proposed: Please provide all of the following information: (Note: Other documentation may not substitute for this. All information must be on this form) A. A statement of major focus and objectives of the revised program (Include this even if it has not changed) The major in psychology is intended to provide a background in the content and methods of psychological science. The Psychology Major Option-A also encourages students to gain expertise in an additional field through the completion of a minor or second major in another discipline. The WSU Psychology programs have not undergone substantial revision for more than a decade. Option-A, in particular, has been of concern to both departmental faculty and an outside reviewer due to its lack of specific content-area distribution requirements. In its current form, students could potentially complete a psychology major without taking any of the fundamental content courses that form the foundation of psychological science. In recent years, this potential problem has been addressed through advising. We now seek to address this problem more formally through a revision to the requirements for the Option-A version of the psychology major. This program revision will also bring the Option-A major into better alignment both with current practices in psychology departments at similar institutions and with the recommendations of the American Psychological Association regarding the undergraduate curriculum. Although detailed information is provided here regarding changes to the distribution of coursework within the major, the only course that would be appropriately considered an addition to the major would be the requirement of taking the existing 1 S.H. course PSY311 Careers in Psychology. B. New Catalog Content (Include these even if they have not changed) 1. Provide a list of program content as it would appear in the catalog including required courses, electives, etc., by number and name. Include the number and name for each prerequisite, and all prerequisites of proposed prerequisites. All such prerequisites should be included in the total credit hour calculations for the revised program. Notes: a) The proposed revision to Option-A of the Psychology Major does not involve any changes to course offerings, course prerequisites, course titles, or course catalog descriptions. b) All current Psychology Department courses numbered 210 or higher either fulfill specific program requirements or count as electives toward the major as described in Section C "Description of Revisions" below. c) A complete list of all Psychology Department courses numbered 210 or higher appears on the following pages. Current prerequisites are noted, as are the GEP "Intensive" requirements addressed by each course. d) Current and proposed catalog copy are given in Section C below.

Note: = Oral Intensive! = Math/Critical Analysis Intensive = Writing Intensive Note: = Oral Intensive! = Math/Critical Analysis Intensive = Writing Intensive SUMMARY OF CHANGES: Change 1: PSY311 Careers in Psychology (1 S.H.) will be added to the list of core requirements. Change 2: PSY434 History & Systems (3 S.H.) will be re-classified as an "Integration" course and PSY408 Advanced Experimental will be added as an alternative means of satisfying this requirement. Change 3: A distribution requirement will be added in which students must take a minimum of one course in at least three of the four foundational fields of psychology: biological psychology, learning & cognitive psychology, social & personality psychology, and developmental psychology. Change 4: Students will be required to take at least one course in an applied field of psychology. Change 5: PSY350 Psychological Testing & Measurement will be moved from the list of core requirements and placed among options for fulfilling the requirement of one course in applied psychology. Change 6: A requirement has been added that at least one course related to human diversity be included among the courses used to meet the other requirements of the major. Change 7: To accommodate new requirements without a substantial increase in the total number of credits required for the major, the required elective credits will be reduced from 18 S.H. to 12 S.H.
6 2. For each required and elective course being added to the program, provide the course number, name, catalog description, and a brief statement explaining why the course should be included in the program. Change 1: PSY311 Careers in Psychology (1 S.H.) will be added to the list of core requirements. PSY Careers in Psychology (1 S.H.) An introduction to and examination of career options for students of psychology and related disciplines. Topics include job opportunities for those with a bachelor s degree in psychology and how to prepare for and choose graduate programs. Prerequisites: 9 credit hours in psychology and CMST Introduction to Public Speaking. Grade only. Offered each semester. Due to its importance for students' career planning and due to its 1 S.H. of Oral Intensive credit completing the 2 S.H. of oral intensive credit earned in the PSY309 requirement, this course has become a de facto requirement of the major. All advisors strongly recommend it and almost all psychology majors take it. Its addition as a requirement merely formalizes existing practice. Change 2: PSY434 History & Systems (3 S.H.) will be re-classified as an "Integration" course and PSY408 Advanced Experimental will be added as an alternative means of satisfying this requirement. PSY History and Systems of Psychology (3 S.H.) A historical overview of psychology and its antecedents are considered to provide a richer understanding of contemporary psychology as an evolving, conceptual system. Majors are encouraged to complete all other core requirements before registering in PSY 434. Prerequisites for non-majors: ENG College Reading and Writing and a minimum of 12 S.H. in psychology. Prerequisites for majors: ENG College Reading and Writing, PSY Introduction to Psychological Science, PSY Statistics, PSY Experimental Psychology, and a minimum of two other courses in psychology (6 S.H.).

PSY408 will now be designated as an alternative integrative course in which students will have the opportunity to further integrate their knowledge of psychology content and methodology in the form of an individual empirical research project. Change 3: A distribution requirement will be added in which students must take a minimum of one course in at least three of the four foundational fields of psychology: biological psychology, learning & cognitive psychology, social & personality psychology, and developmental psychology. Biological Domain PSY 303 Brain & Behavior (3 S.H.) A survey of how neuron physiology directs behavior. Topics include a discussion of functional neuroanatomy as applied to the study of emotion, consciousness, social behavior, feeding, and memory, and a discussion of neurological and psychological disorders, and the diseases of aging. Prerequisite: PSY 210. Offered yearly. Grade only.
7 PSY 410 Sensation & Perception (3 S.H.) A careful consideration of how we come to know about our world through our senses. Emphasis on vision and audition, including clinical aspects.

PSY 250: Developmental Psychology is recommended but not required.
8 PSY 315 Adolescent Development (3 S.H.) This course will focus heavily on the developmental period of adolescence, with some inclusion of information from the developmental period of emerging adulthood (equivalent to roughly ages 12 to 18-25). The major domains of development - biological, cognitive, and social development- will be covered in the course. The course will also cover issues related to psychosocial development (e.g., intimacy, achievement, problems during adolescence). Prerequisite: PSY 210: Introduction to Psychological Science. PSY 250: Developmental Psychology is recommended but not required. The courses listed above are primarily good choices as second course in psychology, and the list resembles the chapter titles of a standard introductory psychology textbook. The domain areas are also the customary subfields of psychology used to organize the undergraduate curriculum in most psychology departments. They are also considered the core content areas in the undergraduate curriculum recommendations of the American Psychological Association. With the exception of PSY433 Neuroscience, all courses are 3 S.H. and have only a single prerequisite: PSY210 Introduction to Psychological Science. PSY433 Neuroscience was included on this list to accommodate relatively rare cases in which students ultimately majoring in psychology fulfill the prerequisites of PSY433 with biology courses, without having taken PSY210 and PSY303. Change 4: Students will be required to take at least one course in an applied field of psychology. PSY Health Psychology (3 S.H.) Explores psychological factors in optimal maintenance of health, treatment of illness and recovery from or adjustment to ongoing health problems. Theories, research methods, and clinical applications from the biopsychosocial context as applied to health psychology are examined. Prerequisite: PSY Introduction to Psychological Science.

Prerequisites: PSY Introduction to Psychological Science and PSY Brain and Behavior. Grade only. Offered yearly. PSY Organizational Psychology (3 S.H.) An analytical survey of theory and research in organizational socialization, decision-making, motivation, leadership and the use of power and authority, communication, organizational change and development, and the evaluation of organizational effectiveness. Prerequisite: PSY Introduction to Psychological Science. Grade only. Offered yearly. PSY Forensic Psychology (3 S.H.)

The classes available to fulfill this requirement represent a mix of intermediate and advanced undergraduate courses that cover a wide range of applications of psychological science, including health/medicine, business & industry, the legal system, and mental health. The goal of this requirement is to develop an understanding of some applications of psychology in "real-world" occupational contexts. Change 5: PSY350 Psychological Testing & Measurement will be moved from the list of core requirements and placed among options for fulfilling the requirement of one course in applied psychology. PSY Psychological Testing and Measurement (3 S.H.) Principles and practice of psychological measurement. Topics include basic statistical concepts; reliability and validity; widely used ability, personality, and interest tests and their application in educational, employment, clinical and basic research settings; social and legal issues arising from test use. Prerequisites: PSY Introduction to Psychological Science, PSY Statistics, ENG College Reading and Writing. Grade only. Offered each semester. Students who choose to fulfill the GEP Writing Intensive requirement through other courses will now have the option of not taking PSY350 and using a different course to fulfill the applied psychology requirement.
10 Change 6: A requirement has been added that at least one course related to human diversity be included among the courses used to meet the other requirements of the major. PSY Psychology of Women and Gender (3 S.H.) A survey of scientific research into the nature of female behavior contrasted with male, including implications for modern living.

Prerequisites: PSY Introduction to Psychological Science and 3 additional S.H. in psychology. Grade only. Offered each semester. PSY Psychopathology of Childhood (3 S.H.) This course will examine the common mental health disorders of childhood and adolescence. A developmental psychopathological framework will be applied to the examination of the disorders. Disorders likely to be covered are anxiety, mood, conduct, pervasive developmental disorders (e.g., autism), and learning. Prerequisites: PSY Introduction to Psychological Science, PSY Developmental Psychology, and PSY Abnormal Psychology. Grade only. Offered yearly. Psychological Science focuses both on human similarities (i.e., generalizations) and on the differences among the diversity of humanity. The diversity requirement helps to assure that students gain familiarity with the latter focus of psychology. It should be noted that a course used to fulfill the diversity requirement can also be used to fulfill another requirement of the major. Thus, this new one-course requirement does not add to the total number of credits required in the major. Change 7: To accommodate new requirements without a substantial increase in the total number of credits required for the major, the required elective credits will be reduced from 18 S.H. to 12 S.H. No specific courses are affected by this change. PSY210 Introduction to Psychological Science, PSY231 Statistics, PSY308 Experimental Psychology, and PSY309 Experimental Psychology Lab will continue to be required courses. All courses above PSY210 that are not used to fulfill a specific requirement of the major can be applied toward the requirement of 12 S.H. of electives in psychology. NOTE: Current catalog copy has been provided above. However, due to changes/additions to departmental faculty in recent years, some courses currently listed as yearly have been offered every semester. Where those increases in frequency appear likely to continue, future catalog copy will be revised accordingly.
