Electives in Psychology may be chosen from the 200-, 300-, and 400-level departmental offerings. Students are encouraged to complete Psychology 210 and 211 during the sophomore year, and 211 must be completed before the end of the junior year. Students also are strongly encouraged to take at least one 300-level laboratory course before the end of the junior year.
