Important Information about PSY344!

Starting this Winter we will offer one section of PSY344: Behavioral Genetics. This is a support course option for psychology students only! Psychology students can select from BIO302 or PSY344. Child Development students can select to substitute PSY344 for BIO302. HOWEVER, the majority of seats in PSY344 will be held for PSY majors only. This will leave very few seats for CD students so please plan wisely. CD students who do take PSY344 will need to complete a course substitution form with their advisor.
