Comprehensive Exam

In order to graduate with a psychology major, students must take a comprehensive exam during their senior year. Students are expected to take the comprehensive exam in the fall of their senior year (students who are on leave or are studying abroad during the fall semester of their senior year should schedule to take the exam upon their return to campus). The exam is not graded, and no grade will appear on the student’s transcript. The purpose of the exam is to test the extent to which psychology majors are retaining core aspects of the psychology curriculum.
