To serve as the basis of a Senior Capstone Experience
Students should work closely with an advisor to plan the required Capstone Experience. The Capstone Experience should be taken during the junior or senior year.
Some courses which meet psychology major requirements are not offered each semester, so students should always consult a Psychology faculty advisor when planning their course schedule.
At least 9 hours (including 6 upper division hours) must be taken at Washburn.
