Recommended Psychology Schedule

Siena College Psychology Major Schedule (Sample)


  1. *Please take the following information into consideration:
  2. This is one example of a general outline you can use to lay out classes for the Psychology major over the next 4 years
  3. Look at your required courses and your interests so that you can design an outline that follows your interests (ask your advisor for help!)
  4. Students can take up to 39 credits in their major (not including Bio 130, Bio 140, and ADTV 110)
  5. Take into consideration if you want to study abroad
  6.  If you are considering doing an internship for credit, decide if you want a research internship or a clinical internship and plan in advance accordingly (pre-requisites are different for each; ask professors for help!)
  7.  Consider taking multiple classes with the one or two professors whose teaching styles you enjoy; this will help when it comes time for Letters of Recommendation
  8.  For graduate school, Research Methods II is a beneficial class to take; however, independent research with faculty, internships, and getting your work published are also valuable (check with your advisor and other faculty members so you can create goals to reach your objectives!)
