New Psychology Curriculum
The Department of Psychology implemented a new curriculum in the Fall of 2011. Changes included new courses, changes to existing course numbers, and new course requirements for students entering UNCW in the 2011-2012 school year.
Students who entered UNCW in the 2010-2011 school year or earlier will be able to graduate using the old curriculum requirements.
Information about navigating the requirements for the Psychology Major or Minor during the transition to the new curriculum are provided here.
