Psychology Major

Declare Major/Minor


Minimum credits: Your major must include a minimum of 36 credits in Psychology courses (35 if you declared the major before September 2005), at least half of which must be taken at Queens College.

Minimum grades: Psychology majors who matriculated at QC in Fall 2013 or later need a minimum grade of C in Psych 101, 107.3 &107.1, 213W, and 311-321 (the Advanced Experimental courses), even if the courses were transferred to QC.  All remaining Psych electives require a grade of C- or better.  Students cannot P/NC any courses in their major/minor. If students P/NC a psych course it can not count toward the 36 credits for the psych major or the 18 credits for the psych minor.
