#1 Psychology Course Change

Please note the following information relevant to the Psychology major as you register for classes for the Summer and Fall:

  • WKU now has both the Department of Psychology in the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences  (http://wku.edu/psychology/) and the new Department of Psychological Sciences in the Ogden College of Science and Engineering (http://wku.edu/psychological-sciences/index.php). 
  • The course schedules for summer and fall classes in both departments are now posted to Topnet.  
  • As you are choosing courses for Summer or Fall 2014 semesters, please be sure to look at courses from both departments to fulfill your requirements for your major or minor.
  • You may take courses with either the "PSY" or "PSYS" prefix in creating your schedule.
  • Some courses included in the Psychology BA degree requirements with a “PSY” (Psychology) prefix are now only offered with the “PSYS” (Psychological Sciences) prefix.
  • A course with either prefix that fulfills a requirement will count toward graduation.
  • The attached document lists the courses that are available from both departments in the Summer and Fall 2014 terms. 

If you have any further questions, please contact your advisor.
