Benefits for taking PSYC 271 this summer:

In order to earn the Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree, psychology majors are required to complete a course in the individual differences cluster. PSYC 271 fills this degree requirement. Completing this requirement as a summer class is a great way to reduce your course-load and relieve some of the stress that comes along with your other semesters.

Moreover, taking a summer course can help you reach your graduation goal faster and more flexibly, concentrate on one class at a time, and complete prerequisites before the fall semester. Summer classes are a great way to save money, since summer per-credit rates are less than fall and spring per-credit rates for regular fee classes and programs! Summer financial aid is also available!
