About this course

psychological study encompasses a broad set of topics that overlap with a number of disciplines across the social and biological sciences. The requirements of the major are designed to acquaint students with the research methods psychologists use and to provide a foundation of core knowledge covering the major areas of psychology. This broad foundation allows students to pursue a more advanced understanding of subfields related to their own particular interests and goals for the major. The program may serve as preparation for graduate work in psychology or related fields (e.g., neuroscience, education), as well as for students interested in careers in social work, public policy, business, or medicine.

Eligibility Criteria

The documents necessary for a valid application are mentioned in the "How to Apply" Section.

Course Modules

Although no special application is required for admission to the major, majors are required to:

  • Inform the Department of Psychology by completing an enrollment form available from the department student affairs administrator in Beecher 109 and inform their College adviser.
  • Subscribe to the Psychology Majors Listhost at https://lists.uchicago.edu/web/info/psychology-majors. The listhost is the primary means of communication between the program and its majors or students interested in being majors. We use it to notify students of events relevant to psychology majors, such as research opportunities, job postings, fellowship announcements, and any changes in the course schedule, or curriculum updates.

Psychology majors are required to complete PSYC 20100 Psychological Statistics and PSYC 20200 Psychological Research Methods by the end of their third year. However, it is strongly recommended that these courses be taken as early as possible as they provide foundational concepts that facilitate understanding of subject area courses.

Students are required to take four of the following five courses, each of which will be offered every year:

PSYC 20300 Biological Psychology 
PSYC 20400 Cognitive Psychology 
PSYC 20500 Developmental Psychology 
PSYC 20600 Social Psychology 
PSYC 20700 Sensation and Perception

At least six additional courses (for a total of twelve in the major) must be chosen from among the courses offered by the Department of Psychology.
