Necessary prerequisites/training

Students having already taken PSYC 2001 and PSYC 2050 preferred, but no pre-requisites — training on the job. Recommend PSYC 3320.


Minimum 2 consecutive semesters. Starting during the Junior year is particularly advantageous. Enrollment in 1 to 3 credits of PSYC 4956 per term (can be used as elective credit in the major or simply general upper division credits) and availability of at least 5-8 hours/week (in addition to a 1-hour weekly meeting) is expected.
