CHANGE IN PSYCHOLOGY AND EARLY CHILDHOOD MAJOR EFFECTIVE FALL 2019:

The psychology department adopted a new curriculum for Psychology and Early Childhood majors. Effective Fall 2019, the requirement to take PSYC 3180 Testing and Measurement will be replaced with a requirement to take PSYC 3130 Experimental Psychology. Students who have already declared their Psychology and Early Childhood major can choose to "opt in" to this new curriculum by contacting Dr. Jeff Lockman, lockman@tulane.edu, and having him email their academic advisor.

Please note that due to the high level of overlap between psychology and neuroscience courses, there is a special curriculum for psychology minors who are neuroscience majors described here.
