At NIU, the Psychology Department is a vibrant and exciting atmosphere in which to develop and train as a student. NIU students can pursue a B.A. or a B.S. degree at the undergraduate level or can minor in Psychology or Cognitive Studies (see the printable Psychology Undergraduate Handbook for further details).
Fields of Study
Study in Psychology at NIU is of the highest quality, as we have over 30 full-time, Ph.D. faculty in the department and offer courses within a variety of concentrations, including:
- Clinical Psychology
- Cognitive & Instructional Psychology
- Developmental Psychology
- Neuroscience and Behavior
- School Psychology
- Social Psychology
- Industrial/Organizational Psychology
- Attention: We are now offering a new Industrial-Organizational lab: PSYC 434. Please rest assured that this new course DOES count toward the major's two required labs, regardless of what MyNIU currently says, so feel free to enroll!
- Beginning Fall 2004, students must have a grade of "C" or better in STAT 208, 301 or 350 in order to take PSYC 305.
- Beginning with the 2003-2004 catalog, Stat 208, 301 or 350 is a prerequisite for Psyc 305, but no longer a co-requisite.
