1 Dalton State College BS Psychology Program The starting program: This document overviews the new BS psychology program at Dalton State College. The following information is primarily focused on students who have completed the AA psychology degree and want to begin the BS program. The BS psychology program will begin Spring 2014 with a range of required and elective courses. A student who has already earned an AA in psychology and who begins the program in Spring 2014 and takes the various courses listed below will complete the degree in 4 regular semesters (not including summer classes). It is very likely that we will teach additional psychology classes through the first 4 semesters, depending on student enrollment in the program. We will also teach upper-level psychology courses in summer sessions. To complete the BS psychology program in 4 regular semesters (not including summer sessions), students should take the following courses that will be taught during our first 4 semesters: Spring 2014 ENGL 000* PSYC 000* PSYC 110* PSYC 200* PSYC 710** Fall 2014 COMM 01* PSYC 120* PSYC 450* PSYC 70** PSYC 800** Spring 2015 PSYC 500* PSYC 4200* PSYC 4700* PSYC 25** PSYC 4400** Fall 2015 PSYC 900* PSYC 4270* PSYC 4900* PSYC 00** PSYC 4600** *= required upper-level class in BS psychology major **=elective upper-level psychology class in BS psychology major; students must take upper-level psychology electives and have 4 guided electives chosen from the level classes from the various programs at DSC. Guided electives can include psychology classes. Guided electives can be used for a minor. At this point, there will be a limited number of elective psychology courses offered; as student enrollment grows, we will add additional elective courses to the program. The program beyond the starting semester: The program has a list of courses that have prerequisites and/or co-requisites (see course listing, below). Therefore, it is important that students take certain courses in the correct order. The most important thing for students to recognize is that taking ENGL 000 and PSYC 110 in the first semester of their junior year and then PSYC 120 in their second semester will meet the prerequisites for all of the remaining required psychology courses and virtually all of the elective psychology courses (except PSYC 400 and PSYC 4400). The schedule of courses, above, accommodates that required order of classes. We recognize that many students will start the program in fall semesters, so we will be offering the ENGL 000 and PSYC 110 courses again in fall semesters and PSYC 200 in spring semesters, along with the various required and elective courses, as appropriate. Frequently asked questions: I am currently an AA psychology major and I want to stay at DSC and earn my BS in psychology. Will I have to change my major to a BS psychology major? How do I do that? 1

2 You will have to change your major to the BS in psychology through Enrollment Services by either going to this website and following the links: or by going to Enrollment Services and filling out a Change of Major Form. You can change your major to BS psychology starting now; it will become active as of Spring Please note that we will be ending the AA psychology program as of Spring This means we will not allow any new students to enroll as AA psychology students as of that time. I want to start the BS psychology program but I work full time and I can t take all of the courses that are listed for the first 4 semesters, above. What can I do? You can take a limited number of classes in the program according to your needs. Our list of classes to be offered, above, is designed to guarantee that a student can complete the degree in 4 regular semesters. Many students will take longer than that, however. An important thing to remember is that some classes are prerequisites to other classes, so you should take those classes early. Check the course listing, below, for the classes that have prerequisites. Also, check with your advisor as to how you can complete the program according to your needs. I will be a new student at Dalton State College in Spring I have been looking at the AA psychology degree and was planning on taking those classes. What do I need to do to earn a BS psychology degree? You will be following the new program that is detailed in this document (see the BS psychology program requirements, below), that is on the Social Sciences website (http://www.daltonstate.edu/social-sciences/programs-of-study.html) and that will be listed in the catalog. Additionally, your advisor will have information about the program. I am going to enroll in the BS psychology program and I ve finished the AA psychology degree. I noticed that there are a number of 000 level and 4000 level classes. Is there a particular order that I should follow as I take those classes? You should begin your junior year taking the PSYC 110 class and the ENGL 000 class in the first semester and then PSYC 120 in the second semester. Those are classes that are prerequisites for a number of other classes. You can fill out your schedule with 000 and 4000 level classes for which the prerequisite is PSYC 1101 with a C or better and ENGL 1102 with a C or better. As you progress, it s always smart to look at the classes you are interested in and be sure you ve met the prerequisites. This means that you might have to plan your schedule in advance so you don t get stuck wanting to take a particular class without having taken the prerequisite for it. I am currently an AA psychology major and I m almost done with that degree. Do I have to completely finish my AA degree before I can take any of the BS degree classes? You can start taking the BS degree classes once you have met the prerequisites for a given class. But, it would be wise to be almost done with your first two years before you start taking upperlevel classes. They will be more difficult than the lower-level classes, so having more experience would be useful. So, a student who has 2 or lower-level classes to finish the AA psychology degree could start the BS psychology degree in Spring 2014 and then take those last lower-level classes in the summer. Also, we would like to encourage you to complete the AA degree on your way to the BS degree you ve worked hard for it and you ve earned it! 2

3 I have already taken PSYC 2250, Abnormal Psychology. I see that PSYC 2250 has been changed to PSYC 200, Abnormal Psychology. Do I have to take PSYC 200 (or, can I take PSYC 200)? If you have earned credit for PSYC 2250, then you cannot earn credit for PSYC 200. Since PSYC 200 is a requirement for the BS degree, you will have to take an additional upper-level elective PSYC class instead of taking PSYC 200. This fourth PSYC elective will not add to the total number of classes that you have to take to earn your BS psychology degree. I took PSYC 2204 (Applications in Psychology) and PSYC 2250 (Abnormal Psychology). I see that both of those classes no longer exist in the course listing on this document. Will I still keep my credit for those classes? You will be able to use both of those classes in the Core Curriculum toward your graduation in psychology. You will not lose credit for the classes. I took PSYC 2204 (Applications in Psychology) and I see that a requirement in the new program is PSYC 000 (Careers in Psychology). Are those classes the same, and do I have to take the PSYC 000 class? The classes are substantively different and you do have to take PSYC 000 even if you have taken PSYC You will find that some of the career areas discussed in PSYC 2204 will be covered in PSYC 000, but the courses are very different. The course description for PSYC 000 is found in the course listings, below. You will not lose credit for PSYC I took PSYC 4800 (Development of Criminal Behavior), and I see that it is not on the course listing on this document. What happened, and can I still use that class in my BS psychology major? You can use PSYC 4800 as an elective upper-level psychology class in the new major. We will have to do some paperwork when you are preparing for graduation, and your advisor will be able to help you with that. The class still exists; we moved it to the Sociology area. You will not be able to earn credit for SOCI 4800 if you have already earned credit for PSYC I noticed that Area F in the AA program has been changed. I ve already finished my Area F with the old requirements; do I have to do it again? The University System guarantees that when you have met an area of the Core Curriculum, all system institutions will accept that area as being finished, as long as you don t change majors. So, if you have already fulfilled Area F as an AA psychology major at Dalton State, you have fulfilled Area F in our new psychology program. I have finished Area F in my AA psychology program without taking PSYC 2250 (Abnormal Psychology) and without taking PSYC 2201 (Psychology of Adjustment). Now I want to take the new PSYC 200 (Abnormal Psychology), and I noticed that it has PSYC 2201 as a prerequisite. What should I do? We will waive the PSYC 2201 prerequisite for PSYC 200 for students who have already completed the AA Psychology Area F without taking PSYC It is likely that Banner will not let you register for PSYC 200; it will require a Schedule Adjustment form signed by the PSYC 200 instructor or the chairperson of Social Sciences or the Dean of Liberal Arts.

4 I have finished Area F in my AA psychology program without taking PSYC 210 (Human Development). Now I want to take PSYC 710 (Child Psychology) and/or PSYC 720 (Adolescent Psychology), and I noticed that they have PSYC 210 as a prerequisite. What should I do? We will waive the PSYC 210 prerequisite for PSYC 710 and/or PSYC 720 for students who have already completed the AA Psychology Area F without taking PSYC 210. It is likely that Banner will not let you register for PSYC 710 or PSYC 720; it will require a Schedule Adjustment form signed by the PSYC 710 or PSYC 720 instructor or the chairperson of Social Sciences or the Dean of Liberal Arts. I took PSYC 2250 (Abnormal Psychology) when I was a different major. Now I ve changed to the BS psychology major and want to take the new PSYC 4400 (Clinical and Counseling Psychology). I noticed that PSYC 4400 has PSYC 200 as a prerequisite. But, I can t take PSYC 200 if I ve already taken PSYC What should I do? We will waive the PSYC 200 prerequisite for PSYC 4400 for students who have already taken PSYC It is likely that Banner will not let you register for PSYC 4400; it will require a Schedule Adjustment form signed by the PSYC 200 instructor or the chairperson of Social Sciences or the Dean of Liberal Arts. I have a declared major in AA psychology but I haven t taken any of my Area F classes. Should I take classes in Area F from the old program or from the new program? You should take Area F classes from the new program. The new Area F in psychology is designed to help you better meet the upper-level requirements. If you have partially completed your Area F under the old program, you should work with your advisor to complete Area F using as many of the new Area F courses as possible. I have a declared major in a different area, and I met the Area F requirements in that area. But those requirements are different than the new psychology Area F. I want to change to the psychology BS major. What do I need to do in Area F? You have to meet the new Area F requirements in psychology. The University System guarantee about meeting the various areas applies if you don t change majors. If you change majors, you have to meet the Area F of the new major. I see on the program listing that there are Guided Electives: level. What are these? Guided electives encompass 4 courses at the 2000 level and higher in the various academic programs at DSC (note that any 2000 level classes must be transfer classes, not career classes). We have guided electives to allow you to pursue interests that complement your studies in psychology and/or that are appropriate for your career goals. For example, you might be interested in working in human resources in business. If so, you can take a range of business classes that would support that career goal. Or you might be interested in graduate or professional school. If so, you can take specific classes that would help you in your preparation for the MCAT, LSAT, or GRE. Or you might be somebody who has a broad range of interests in academic areas. If so, you can take several different courses in different academic areas to allow you to pursue those broad interests. Or you might want to earn a minor at DSC. You can use your guided electives (and perhaps electives in the Core Curriculum) toward a minor. You and 4

5 your advisor should talk about your interests and plans and then determine what your individual guided electives should be. I have been taking upper-level classes in a different major for the last year waiting for the BS psychology program to begin. Now I m going to change majors to BS psychology. Can I use those upper-level classes from my other major as my guided electives? Presumably you were enrolled in a different major that held an academic or career interest to you. If so, then you should be able to use those classes as part of your guided electives. You should talk with your advisor. I want to take a class that is on the course listing but is not on the schedule of classes for the first two years. How can I do that? The schedule of classes for the first 4 semesters is our guaranteed list that you can use to graduate in 4 semesters. We will be teaching additional classes from our course listing, however, even in our first 4 semesters. What we teach will depend on the number of students who enroll in the program. If our program is very successful in enrolling students, we will be able to offer a wider range of courses. If there is a particular class that enough students will commit to taking (that will be about 20 students), we can put it on the schedule, subject to prerequisites and faculty teaching loads. I m a night student, and I want to earn a BS psychology degree. Can I do this at night? The program will be a daytime program for the foreseeable future. We will offer some upperlevel classes in the late afternoon period, and we will continue to offer our lower-level psychology courses in the evening. I want to earn a minor in psychology. I see that there are currently very specific classes that are listed for a psychology minor. Will those change when the program begins? Our current minor in psychology is based on the limited number of upper-level psychology classes that we have been teaching. We will change the minor to reflect the broader courses. The new minor will appear in the catalog, to be released in Fall Why is the new BS psychology program not listed in the current college catalog? The catalog is a listing of our current programs. We are still teaching our current AA psychology program in Fall 201, including some classes that will either change or be removed in the new program. The BS psychology program is starting in Spring 2014, and we cannot put it into our catalog until the program begins. The BS psychology program will be listed in the catalog, to be released at the beginning of Fall Meanwhile, the program information is available from advisors and from the Department of Social Sciences. There are several classes that are currently in the online catalog that do not exist in the psychology class listing in this document. Why is that, and will I have a problem if I ve taken a class that no longer exists? We will change the lower-level psychology classes that we are offering as the new BS psychology program starts in Spring We will also move PSYC 4800 to Sociology. Those changes will be reflected in the catalog that is released in Fall The document that you are reading now reflects the program that will be implemented in Spring You will not have a 5

6 problem if you took a class that was in our old Area F, even if we no longer offer it when the new BS psychology program begins. I might be interested in the BS psychology program one day, but what I really want to do is to earn my AA psychology degree over the next year. Up above you said the AA psychology program will end in Spring Does that mean I can t finish my AA psychology degree? We will be de-activating the AA psychology program at the start of Spring That means we will no longer admit new students to that program. But, any student who is an AA psychology student as of the end of Fall 201, and who wants to complete that degree, will have 2 years to finish the AA psychology degree. I find this whole thing confusing. Whom can I talk to? Your advisor is your first point of contact concerning this program. You can also see Dr. Michael Hoff in LIA 247 (or for information. Dr. Judy Cornett is the chairperson of Social Sciences, and Dr. Mary Nielsen is the dean of Liberal Arts; both of them can provide information about the BS psychology program, as well. We have spent several years planning the program, and we are now in the process of implementing it. We know that there will be confusion and that we will have to help out individual students who have a variety of questions and problems. Please rest assured that we will do our best to make sure that this transition occurs smoothly and that you will be able to continue and complete your BS psychology degree at DSC with a minimum of problems. 6
