Dear Students,

The following Psychology classes still have many seats available for all students, including first year students.  Instructors have indicated that they will waive the prerequisite as noted (and will adjust the class accordingly):

PSYC 251 Sec 01 & 02: Psychopathology (will waive Intro)

PSYC 221 Sec 01 & 02: Human Memory (will waive Intro)

PSYC 322: Psychology of Decision Making (no prereqs)

PSYC 203: Sec 01 & 02: Quantitative Methods (will waive Stats, but not Intro)

See WesMaps for course details.  Please make an enrollment request and attend the next class!  Also, please note that if you are/ are intending to major in Psychology, you should not miss this opportunity to take the research methods course requirement for the major while there are seats available.  This newly added course is standard general methods course that will prepare you well for future research opportunities in the major.  It is just like the other methods courses being offered except that it uses examples across the field of psychology, rather than focusing on just one subfield, thus the more general title.

Best wishes during add/drop!  Andrea Patalano, Department of Psychology
