Add Psychology Major

Students interested in declaring psychology as a major should email psypeers@uoregon.edu to start new major orientation. New major onboarding workshops and activities are designed so advisors can help students become familiar with the psychology curriculum, develop academic plans keeping graduation timelines in mind, become aware of resources in the department, and succeed as a psychology major. In addition, students will fill out forms to declare/add psychology as a major.

Please note: Change of major forms take approximately 3 weeks to process. Students wishing to declare psychology as a major should meet with a psychology advisor to make an appropriate academic plan for upcoming terms.

Add Psychology Minor

Students interested in adding psychology as a minor, or dropping the major/minor, should email psypeers@uoregon.edu to make an academic plan and fill out a request form.

When DuckWeb shows psychology as your major or minor, you should be able to register for restricted courses if you have the prerequisites. If you have any questions regarding changing your major or minor to psychology or have problems registering for psychology courses, email the psychology undergraduate coordinator, Jeff Davis.

Please note: Change of minor forms take approximately 3 weeks to process. Students wishing to declare psychology as a minor should meet with a psychology advisor to make an appropriate academic plan for upcoming terms.
