The Senior Capstone Project must be proposed in advance with assistance from your faculty advisor. All projects must be approved by department chairperson.
Transfer courses must be approved by the department before being applied to the major or minors. For transfer students at least one half of the courses applied to the major (15 semester hours) or minors (9 semester hours) must be taken at Northeastern. No more than two courses (6 semester hours) transferred in from junior/community colleges may be applied to the major or minors. Junior/community college courses may not be used in place of 300-level Northeastern courses. Students who transfer in an approved 3 semester hour course equivalent to General Psychology may complete the major with 30 semester hours, or the psychology minor with 18 semester hours.
The same courses may not be used to fill requirements in two different programs within the department.
