Hey guys

Well I was wondering how long it usually takes to complete the upper division courses for PSYCHOLOGY major at the UC schools, assuming the the GEs and the rest of the courses have been completed?

And I'm talking about ANY UC school...maybe you might know yourself or some of your friends who were Psychology majors?

Please help...

I just looked in my UCI catalogue, and apparently, if you finish all of the lower division psych requirements and the University requirements, you only have to take 10 courses (40 units) of upper division Psych and social behavior classes. This is just for UCI, but I hope it helps.

Thanks..well I'm at a junior college, so I'm wondering if its even POSSIBLE to complete 40 units or so (assuming other UCs have it around there as well) in one school year?

Thanks once again.

It is totally possible if you work hard and take three quarters of 3,3, and 4 classes of psych alone. That is also if EVERYTHING you have transfers and takes care of all of the university and lower division requirements.

I'm not a psych major, but I know that at UC Berkeley, you can finish them in 4 semesters or possibly even less (with a normal load of other courses). It depends on how many other courses you have and if you're double majoring/minoring and such.

I was a former psych major at berkeley, and the requirements are strange. before 2 yrs ago it was easy to finish everything w/in 2-4 semesters (depending on how many psych classes you wanted to take). Then they changed the major and you have to take a certain # or classes in each psych sub-section (development, clinical, social, etc). That sucked, b/c I wasn't interested in taking classes in non-biological psych. Thus I switched my major to Neurobiology.

So if you're looking at Berkeley, you'll need to look into the specific class requirements.

here's how it is at UCSD:

1 year calculus
1 quarter stats
1 quarter computer science
12 upper-division psych (quarter-long, that is). this has to include 5 out of the 6 "core"/intro classes, psych 101-106

so it's technically possible to finish within a year if you have already finished some of it... but you have to remember your priority for registration as well. some classes (like the "core" classes) tend to fill up very quickly because they're required. i wouldn't count on it, but it's possible.
