Resources for Undergraduate Students
Welcome to the homepage for current bachelor degree students in the Psychology program at the University of Northern Colorado. This page is here to provide you with easy access to resources to make you successful here on campus.
Across the required and elective hours of our curriculum, you will develop transferable skills in several areas including research design and analysis, the ability to understand human behavior, recognition of and tolerance for diversity, report writing and presentation, establishing rapport in groups, and critical thinking.
We are home to an active chapter of Psi Chi, the national honor society for psychology students. Psi Chi works closely with the program faculty and provides social and preprofessional opportunities to qualifying students. Also, we strongly encourage high achieving students with an affinity for research and an interest in graduate school to consider applying to the University Honors Program.
You are encouraged to meet with your advisor every semester. This is necessary prior to registration as your advisor will discuss your schedule and provide you with your personal identification number (PIN). It is a good idea to arrange to meet with your advisor at least one week before your scheduled registration day.
Still having trouble meeting with your advisor? As of Fall 2017, Psychological Sciences has a new full-time academic advisor, Dr. Melissa Lea, located in McKee Hall 17. Stop by to say hello and get your questions answered! (More information on the Psychological Sciences Academic Advising Center coming soon!)
