Humanities/Social Sciences - These General Education requirements can double dip within the BS in Psychology degree general education requirements (including: US Tradition, Other Cultures/Global Perspectives, Aesthetic Awareness, Race/Ethnic Diversity, and Gender Issues). See list of courses satisfying the General Education requirements for Humanities and Social Sciences to see which courses may also count for BS in Psychology requirements. Please double check with your advisor or the Department of Social Sciences to ensure your class will double dip. If it does not, then you will need to take another elective to meet the 120 hour requirement for the major.
