Recommendations from psych alumni to senior year psych majors

  • Be sure to finish your upper level courses.
  • Don’t stop taking psychology courses even after you finish your requirements. Take at least one per quarter and take those classes you really want to take!

  • If you are planning on working after graduation, take classes in other departments that might help you in your area of interest.
