Advanced Courses (formerly called Electives) allow you to craft a more individualized program in psychology. We encourage you to explore a broad range of course options by choosing departmental and non-departmental courses that build upon the background in psychology covered in both your Introductory Course and the more focused Foundational Courses to create a cohesive plan of study.
