Psychology majors/minors should plan to complete PSYC 290 - Behavioral Research and Statistics I and PSYC 291 - Behavioral Research and Statistics II at Dominican University. These courses are central to the psychology major/minor, and unless there are extraordinary circumstances, the department will not approve transfer credit for these courses. The learning outcomes for PSYC 290/291 foster the development of the skills and knowledge psychology students need in order to be successful in upper level psychology courses at Dominican. Although some other four-year colleges may offer integrated research methods and statistics courses for their psychology majors, these courses typically do not cover all of the essential learning outcomes taught in PSYC 290 and PSYC 291.
A minimum of 14 hours in the minor field must be completed at Dominican.
