Advising Notes for Psychology

  • Transfer students who complete courses prior to matriculation at JMU that are the equivalent of PSYC 101 and MATH 220 (PSY 200 & MTH 245) are automatically admitted to the major. In addition, completion of PSY 213 and 211 at BRCC allows students access to the upper-division major courses upon transferring, ensuring timely progression to graduation from JMU.


  • Students can choose to complete either a B.A. or B.S. degree in psychology. The B.A. degree requirements are a philosophy class and intermediate proficiency in a foreign language. Please Note: JMU does not grant credit for the introductory levels of a language that a student has studied for two or more years in high school. Students who are proficient or fluent in another language may elect to wait and take JMU’s foreign language placement exam. It is possible to test into the 300-level of a language.

  • Students interested in the B.S. degree will need to complete the equivalent of two 200-level math courses (calculus and statistics), or the equivalent of one 200-level math course and 6 credits of transferable math.
