The Department of Psychology strives for excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service. We apply psychological knowledge, skills, and tools to further the understanding of human behavior by using the scientific method for the benefit of our students, the UA Little Rock campus community, and the citizens of the state of Arkansas.
Major in Psychology
Minimum requirements for a psychology major are 34 hours of psychology (16 hours must be in residence) as specified below with a grade of C or greater in all psychology courses counted toward the major. Students pursuing a professional career in psychology are advised that the master’s degree is the minimum training necessary. Prospective psychology majors, regardless of whether they plan to go to graduate school, should select courses with early and continuing advice from the department faculty. It is important that students plan their program of courses carefully. A wide range of courses is recommended as preparation for the requirements of different schools.
PSYC 3369 , PSYC 3469 , PSYC 4221 , PSYC 4321 , and PSYC 4495 are suggested to upper-level pre-professional majors. They provide experience in the actual work done by professional psychologists in ways not possible in lecture courses and are valuable credentials in application to graduate school. A maximum of six hours of these courses can be applied toward the major.
