II. College of Arts and Sciences Requirements

  • Modern Languages 1150, 1250, 1350, or equivalent (15)


All students with a major in the College of Arts and Sciences must demonstrate competency through the level of 1350 in a language other than English. This competency is ordinarily achieved by successful completion of the three-course sequence: 1150, 1250, and 1350. Because these courses are a college requirement, no course in the sequence may be taken on a pass/fail, correspondence, or audit basis. Placement into other than the beginning course of the sequence is achieved by acceptable performance on the Modern Language Competency Examination. See the Modern Languages and Cultures Department for details on the examinations. Courses used to satisfy the College of Arts and Sciences modern language requirement may not be used to fulfill major requirements.

Forensic Psychology Specialization


1. With exception of the “other major requirements,” a maximum of 30 community college credits may apply to this specialization. 2. Psychology courses not listed may be selected as forensic psychology electives if deemed applicable and approved by the program chair. 3. Students planning to pursue graduate study in forensic psychology should consider a double major, or at minimum, a minor in psychology. No more than 15 credits of psychology courses from this specialization will be counted towards a psychology minor. 4. PSYC 3030  and PSYC 3050  fulfill CRJS 3020  and CRJS 3010  for students obtaining a double major or double degree in criminal justice and psychology.
