NMC Transfer Guide

To: Central Michigan University - Main Campus

Program: Psychology

The Psychology department offers two majors. The first is extremely flexible and is appropriate for anyone interested in psychology, regardless of postgraduate plans. The second major is relatively structured. This major is recommended if you wish to go on for graduate study in psychology. Most of your major will be done at CMU. You must complete 15 semester hours of your major at CMU. The following list of courses will prepare you for either a major or a minor in psychology at CMU.

It should be noted that a major in Psychology at the Bachelor level can be used in many occupations. However, if you are interested in pursuing a field in which therapeutic treatment is required, graduate work will be necessary. With a Bachelor in Psychology, you can pursue graduate work in counseling, social work or psychology.

ADMISSION CRITERIA

  2. Grades less than a 2.0 will not transfer to CMU.
