A 2.00 GPA for all Psychology courses completed at UNC Charlotte.
3 Each student is responsible for knowing the basic requirements needed to earn their college degree including their major, minor, and general education requirements. This tutorial should take you 1 hour to study and learn the information. You may stop and return as time permits. It is strongly suggested that you do not attempt to complete the Psychology Major Application until you have a thorough understanding of the information presented in this tutorial. It is strongly suggested that you print a copy of the Major and General Education requirements from the Web or pick up copies in the Psychology department to use while studying this tutorial.
4 Time to Complete the Psychology Major Current UNC Charlotte students who have not earned credit for Research Methods I or II will need to plan for a minimum of three semesters, excluding summer sessions, to complete the requirements for the major. The three semesters begin with the semester AFTER declaring the major. Research Methods I is followed by Research Methods II, followed by the Capstone course. None of these three courses may be taken concurrently and they must be taken in sequence. If you have 80+ earned credits at the time you apply for the major, you should plan on graduation being delayed at least 1 term and in most situations 2 terms.

6 ACADEMIC ADVISING FOR THE PSYCHOLOGY MAJOR AT UNC CHARLOTTE An undergraduate degree in Psychology can open many doors. Graduates may pursue options in the corporate world, education, public service, social service, and/or continue their education at the master s or doctoral level. The PASS Center, located in Colvard 4111, was established to assist psychology majors and minors on their journey to an undergraduate degree and beyond. We are here to answer questions, provide information and guidance. An advisor won t make decisions for students, but will provide information and suggestions which allow students to make informed decisions about their future endeavors. All Psychology majors should check Banner or Niner Advisor for the name of their academic advisor. Advising will be required before registration for classes when: majors have earned credits, and/or a cumulative GPA below The PASS Center maintains a library of resources for writing in Psychology, careers in psychology, applying to graduate school, and information files for graduate programs around the country. The size of the Psychology program puts a great demand on the academic advisors. To ensure the best possible service several advising policies are in place.
7 PSYCHOLOGY DEPARTMENT ACADEMIC ADVISING POLICIES To schedule an appointment with your assigned advisor Go to Starfish on 49er Express to schedule an appointment. If your advisor is not available at the times you need - check for walk-in advising credits. No Show policy Any student who makes an appointment and does not show for that appointment or arrives more than 15 minutes late, without notice, will be restricted to walk-in advising for the remainder of the term. Unprepared policy - Students who arrive at an advising appointment unprepared for the appointment may be asked to reschedule the appointment. To be prepared for your advising appointment students should: 1. Review requirements to determine the courses still needed for the major, minor and General Education. Check the CAPP Degree Evaluation for possible missing coursework. 2. Review the courses offered for the following term(s) to determine what is offered. 3. Plan an ideal schedule and a plan B, maybe even a plan C for high demand courses. 4. Prepare questions about course selection for your advisor. 5. Be prepared to discuss time to degree, will you finish in 4 years? Have a plan and bring your plan.
8 PSYCHOLOGY DEPARTMENT ACADEMIC ADVISING POLICIES Pre-Registration Advising (the period between the publication of the schedule and registration week) Advising appointments will fill quickly. If you have an advising hold it is in your best interest to schedule your advising appointment early. You may schedule an appointment weeks in advance, even before the schedule is available, for an appointment after the schedule comes out. Do not expect to schedule an appointment for the next/same day, 24 hours ahead is the minimum. Attend an advising clinic, if eligible, rather than make an individual appointment. Do not plan to discuss career, graduate school plans, or other involved issues. The 15 minute appointment does not allow time for this. Make an appointment for these talks outside of the pre-registration period. Types of Advising within the department Peer Advising Available for students in good standing. Meet with a trained student advisor for course selection and progress toward degree. Good source of information from students who have been there. Advising Clinics Available for students in good standing. Meet with a group of other Psychology students in a general discussion of courses and course sequencing. Short individual discussions are available at the end of the group meeting if desired. Students on Probation must be seen individually by an academic advisor. Academic Advisors Required for students not in good standing. In depth review of progress, career and graduate school planning (other than pre-registration period), or significant academic questions.
9 PSYCHOLOGY DEPARTMENT COURSE REPEAT AND MINIMUM GRADE POLICY The Psychology Department has a maximum course repeat policy. The courses below must be completed with a grade of C or better by the 2 nd attempt to be eligible to continue in the major. An attempt is defined as completion of the course with a grade of A, B, C, D, F, W, A, P, N, or I. Retaking a course using a grade replacement does count as the 2 nd attempt. Should a withdrawal from a course or all courses for a term be from a major illness or family circumstance students should discuss this decision with their academic advisor before withdrawing. A grade of W, in extraordinary circumstances, may be determined a non-attempt with the approval of the psychology academic advisor. The courses effected by the two attempt policy are: PSYC 1101 General Psychology Any course used for the Statistics requirement PSYC 2101 Research Methods I PSYC 2103 Research Methods II Any course used as a Capstone Psychology majors asked to leave the major under the 2 attempt rule will need to change to another major by the 6 th week of classes. If they do not voluntarily change their major they will have their major changed to University College and an advising hold will be placed on their registration.
10 B. S. REQUIREMENTS OVERVIEW All psychology majors, will complete coursework in the following areas: 7 courses (19 credits) from the Research Methods/Critical Thinking Group 4 courses (12 credits) from the Knowledge Base Group 2 courses (6 credits) from the Application of Psychology group 2 courses (6 credits) from the Psychology Elective Group. 1 course (3 credits) from the Capstone group Additional requirements: Completion of a minor or 2 nd major Completion of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences General Education requirements The following pages will explain each area of Psychology major coursework more fully.
11 RESEARCH METHODS/CRITICAL THINKING GROUP GENERAL PSYCHOLOGY General Psychology is a 3 credit lecture course that provides an overview of the broad field of Psychology. It may be completed at UNC Charlotte, transferred in from another school, or through AP and IB programs. General Psychology Lab The Lab may not be used as part of the major. If a major takes the lab it will be counted a general elective and included in the 120 credits needed for graduation. The lab may be used as an elective course in some other majors or minors where the General Psychology Lecture and Lab are optional course(s). General Psychology Lecture and Lab and General Education requirements General Psychology Lecture and Lab can be used to fulfill the General Education Lab Science credit for Psychology majors. However, for the major two additional science courses that are eligible to earn General Education Science credit, one with a lab must be completed outside the major. In essence, Psychology majors must complete three science courses --at least one with a lab.
12 RESEARCH METHODS/CRITICAL THINKING GROUP STATISTICS COURSE The preferred Statistics course is STATS 1222 (Statistics for the Social and Behavior Sciences). However STATS 1220 or STATS 1221 will be accepted. AP credit is also acceptable. The Statistics course will fulfill part of the Logical Reasoning General Education requirement. A grade of C or better, within 2 attempts, is required in a Statistics course before declaring or enrolling in Research Methods I. The grade(s) from Statistics courses will be included in the Psychology GPA. Statistics Pre-Requisites College Algebra (MATH 1100), or demonstrated math ability through course work, or placement exam is a prerequisite (required) before taking the Statistics course. In many cases MATH Finite Math transferred from another school is not sufficient as a pre-requisite for Statistics. Check with the Math Department (Fretwell, 3 rd floor) to determine if this class will meet the prerequisite for Statistics. MATH 1102 Introduction to Mathematical Thinking is not a sufficient pre-requisite for Statistics; this course is acceptable as part of the General Education Logical Reasoning General Education requirement.
13 RESEARCH METHODS/CRITICAL THINKING GROUP RESEARCH METHODS I & II Before enrolling in Research Methods I, students need to complete General Psychology AND Statistics both with a C or better, within TWO attempts. A grade of C or better within TWO attempts is required in both Research Methods I and Research Methods II. Students must earn a C or better in Research Methods I to take Research Methods II. Students registering for Research Methods II, while enrolled in Research Methods I, who do not earn a C or better in Research Methods I will need to drop their enrollment in Research Methods II. Students not dropping the subsequent course voluntarily will be dropped by the Psychology Department and will not be issued an override to repeat the course in the next term. Research Methods I and II may not be completed during the same term. Students should plan their courses to complete Research Methods II by the end of the 1st semester Junior year. Research Methods II will complete the Writing in the Discipline requirement for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences General Education requirements. Research Methods II MAY NOT be taken concurrently with any capstone course.
14 RESEARCH METHODS/CRITICAL THINKING GROUP SCIENCE COURSES REQUIRED FOR THE MAJOR Psychology majors will need to complete two Natural Sciences (one with a corresponding Lab) outside of Psychology. The grades from these courses will be included in the Psychology GPA. General Psychology and General Psychology Lab may not be used to fulfill this requirement. The two Natural Science courses, one with a lab, need to be completed with a grade of C or better; transfer credit is usually acceptable. The science courses must be selected from the General Education Inquiry Sciences Requirements list in the current University catalog. This list does change from time to time. Courses that will count toward this requirement will be coded on the Banner Advising Transcript as G- Science & Tech
15 KNOWLEDGE BASE COURSES Majors are required to complete four Knowledge Base courses. Each course must be from a different area. If a student wants to take more than 1 course from an area, the additional course(s) will be used as a Psychology elective(s).

Please note: No Capstone courses may be completed in the same term as Research Methods II. Only one Capstone course may be completed with the exception of Honors Thesis II. Student completing Honors Thesis II may complete another Capstone course, if desired. The Capstone course is designed to bring closure to the major and provide students with the opportunity to apply and integrate the knowledge and skills they have acquired in a comprehensive and challenging course. Students are allowed to complete one Capstone course. If they take a Capstone and do not earn a grade of C or better they may take another Capstone. The four capstone choices are: PSYC 46 Senior Seminar PSYC 4603 History and Systems PSYC 4606 Advanced Topics PSYC 4691 Honors Thesis II
19 CAPSTONE COURSES (PAGE 2) Senior Seminars are small Writing Intensive and Oral Communication courses focusing on a specific area or topic.

21 Internships Assistantships Honors
22 PSYC 3405 PRACTICUM (INTERNSHIPS) (PAGE 1) Psychology practicum allows students to earn course credit while learning about applying Psychology and gaining hands-on experience in an off-campus organization. Most students will be assigned to an agency such as a mental health or disability center that provides clinical counseling or other treatment services. Generally, students assist agency staff members in teaching skills, leading group activities, or observing and interacting with clients. It is not realistic for undergraduate students to provide individual counseling or psychotherapy. In addition to the agency work, students also attend a weekly seminar on campus. Students who are interested in different issues such as Industrial/Organizational Science or Community Psychology, may be assigned to a different faculty member who will help arrange a placement, determine course requirements, and provide supervision. Practicum is graded on a pass/no credit basis. Course requirements for practicum: work in the agency 4 to 8 hours per week for 2 to 4 credits attend campus seminar 1.5 hours per week and complete assigned readings keep a daily journal of experiences/insights develop a special project in the agency To take practicum you: must be at least a junior Psychology major, be in good standing, and complete an application process. are limited to applying a maximum of 8 credit credits of PSYC 3405 at UNCC towards the necessary 120 credits for graduation and can only apply 4 credits toward the Psychology degree requirements.
23 Steps to Enroll in PSYC 3405 Submit a PSYC 3405 REQUEST FORM to the supervising instructor listed in the Schedule of classes at least 2 days before registration begins. (Enrollment is limited and priority will be given to students who are seniors, have good grades, and have strong faculty recommendations. Late applications will be considered only if there is space available.) Request forms are available in the PASS Center. Check outside the supervising instructor s office the first day of Registration for a list of who has been admitted to the course. If you have permission to enroll, you will be automatically admitted when you register. Be ready to begin work during the first week of classes. Meet with the supervising instructor during the last month of the semester to arrange the placement for the next semester. (You should not arrange your own placement; the faculty supervisor will work with you to find a placement that is compatible with your schedule and interests.) Withdrawing Only apply for PSYC 3405 if you are seriously committed to completing the assignment. It is extremely disruptive to have students withdraw.
24 PSYC 3806, 3807, AND 3808 PSYC 3806 Research Assistantship Students become member of a research team completing assigned duties agreed upon with the supervising faculty member. PSYC Peer Advising Applications for the following academic year are sent out to eligible students during February. Interested students can apply, and candidates will be interviewed in a competitive process to select the peer advisors. A minimum 2 semester commitment is required. PSYC 3808 Undergraduate Teaching Assistant - Eligibility varies by instructor, permission to enroll is at the instructor s discretion. The first step to enroll in these courses is to discuss your interests with the Psychology faculty member with whom you would like to work. This should be done early in the semester preceding your anticipated enrollment in the course. A maximum of 6 credits of PSYC 3806, 3807, and/or 3808 may be included in the 39 credits for the Psychology major. Additional credits of PSYC 3806, 3807, and/or 3808 may be used as general elective credit and included in the 120 credits needed for graduation.
25 EARNING HONORS IN PSYCHOLOGY Psychology students with a grade point average of 3.2 or higher, have junior standing, and at least a grade of B in PSYC 2101 & 2103 may attempt to earn their degree with Honors by completing an original research project and successfully defending it before a faculty committee. During the junior year, a student interested in graduating with Honors should discuss their plans with the Psychology Honors program director. The director will assist the student in choosing an appropriate Thesis topic and in forming a Thesis Committee. Although PSYC 4690 will usually be taken in the first semester of the senior year, it could be taken earlier if a student wishes to begin honors work in the second semester of the junior year, or during the summer before their first senior semester. While enrolled in PSYC 4690, the student will complete a formal proposal for Honors Thesis work. This proposal will be defended before the student s Thesis Committee before the end of the semester. During the student s final semester, the student will be enrolled in PSYC 4691 and will complete the actual Honors Thesis. The Thesis must be defended before the Thesis Committee and other interested students and faculty. The student must also earn at least 1 A and 1 B in PSYC 4690 and PSYC 4691.
26 SELECTING A MINOR Who needs a minor? All Psychology majors will need a minor or a 2 nd major. What minors, 2 nd majors can I select from? Psychology majors may select any major or minor offered at UNC Charlotte. To find all minors offered check the web page How do I declare a minor? Each department has it s own procedures for declaring the major or minor. Students should check the online University catalog and the departments web page to review the requirements for the 2 nd major or minor. Students should not expect their Psychology academic advisor to be completely familiar with other departments major and minor requirements. The advisor may have general knowledge, but the details should be obtained from the department involved. Most minors will not accept students who do not have a 2.00 GPA overall and a 2.00 GPA in the courses to be used for the minor or 2 nd major being declared.
27 Getting Involved with Psychology
28 Psychology Student Coalition GETTING INVOLVED WITH PSYCHOLOGY The coalition s purpose is to bring together students sharing a common interest in Psychology. The club is governed by elected student officers who organize the club s activities in response to the interests and needs of its members. The club meets regularly (during fall and spring semesters), and features guest speakers on topics of relevance to Psychology majors, such as graduate school, practicum, and postgraduation jobs. Psi Chi Psi Chi is the International Honor Society in Psychology. The purpose of Psi Chi is to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship, and advancing the science of Psychology. Membership is open to majors with junior standing, a overall and psychology GPA of 3.00 or higher, and have at least 9 credits of psychology at UNC Charlotte. Applications are accepted during specific times during the term. Check the Psi Chi bulletin board in the 3 rd floor hallway of Colvard for deadlines.
29 Peer Advising (PSYC 3807) Peer advisors are advanced undergraduate Psychology majors who have been trained in academic advising. Peer advisors assist students with course selection, supply information to prospective psychology majors/minors, assist the PASS Center staff with public information events, provide new major/minor orientation, and assist with Advising Clinics during pre-registration. Becoming a Peer Advisor is a competitive process. Applications for Peer advisor positions are accepted during the Spring term for the following year.
