The Psychology Undergraduate Advising Office provides a broad variety of services to assist undergraduate students in their academic development. Advisors are happy to answer your questions regarding the PSYC major, course requirements, research, internship opportunities, and more. Advising for Psychology majors is not mandatory. However, students are encouraged to meet with an advisor on a periodic basis to confirm progress in meeting degree requirements.

PSYC Advisors are available to meet with you! Below are the best ways to reach out.
