E.  Department of Psychology

      Change in curriculum, University Bulletin, page 177 UG

      Justification
     
The major requirements currently allow four psychology electives with no more than 6 hours 
	of independent study courses.  This requirement is to ensure breadth in training in 	            
        psychology and it was felt that the practicum course (PSYC 489) was as narrow as many of 
	the independent study courses and should be included in the stipulated 6 hours.  However, it 
	was also felt that the students, particularly those going on for additional professional training 
	after their undergraduate degree, should be encouraged to take these courses as general 
	electives.  The following are the proposed changes to make in the last paragraph under the 
	Major Requirements heading.  The new wording also corrects an error that has gotten into the 
	Bulletin; the error was the phrase ?with at least 9 hours numbered 300 or above with at least 
	9 hours in courses at 400 and above..?.  The wording in the Bulletin in 1996-97 seems to 
	have been mismanaged even though the galleys sent to the department were correct.
