The Undergraduate Psychology Major: An Examination of Structure and Sequence
Early study of the curriculum focused on the ideal array of experiences that should comprise the psychology major. We developed a standardized coding scheme to identify common curricula and course titles across institutions and current implementation of the curriculum. We compared psychology major programs in 2005 to programs described a decade earlier to evaluate the progress that has been made toward implementing published curriculum design recommendations. These data will aid departments in curriculum development and serve as a benchmark for common curriculum practices at this point in the evolution of the undergraduate psychology major in North America.
