Congratulations! If you are reading this guide you are already a major or minor in psychology or you are considering the major or minor. This handbook is intended to be a useful resource to help you do a variety of things, including planning your course schedules, becoming involved in student psychology organizations, and preparing for a career in psychology following graduation. The information presented here should be considered a useful reference, not a replacement for your academic adviser. Also, the information presented here should be considered a starting point, not the final authority, as information/requirements can and often do change. We believe psychology is one of the most interesting and useful academic disciplines, and we hope you have a rewarding and successful experience in the Penn State Altoona program!
