Students must meet all Liberal Learning Outcomes required for graduation from the University of Charleston. Psychology majors must take and pass a comprehensive examination or its equivalent prior to or during the final semester of the senior year.
In partial fulfillment of the requirements of the PSYC 452 course, students present the results of their research to faculty and peers. This traditionally occurs at the Tri-State Undergraduate Psychology Conference and the University of Charleston Showcase held each spring.
