Student Learning Outcomes


Given the availability of the newly created Psychology Student Development Resource Moodle that helps guide students in their personal and professional career development; and given a well-established and oft revised Advising Moodle that offers tailored academic guidance; the Psychology faculty has determined that there is no longer a need to require a one hour course titled “Orientation to Psychology” (PSY 220) in the undergraduate major curriculum. Not only will removing this large multiple section course allow the psychology department to make efficient use of its resources, but it will also remove a demand on the university’s limited classroom resources.
