Psychology Education Program of Study

The listed sequence is only a suggestion. Final decision rests with the student and the academic advisor(s) and will vary depending on the schedule, endorsement requirements, etc.

Students seeking endorsements in education need to work closely with their advisors regarding the required coursework in their subject endorsements and in professional education. Students are encouraged to consider taking a foreign language as part of their general education program. (See appropriate section of catalog.)

No course with a grade below C will be accepted as part of the minimum requirements for the endorsement.
