Students planning on graduate school in psychology are advised to take at least one course in calculus. It should also be kept in mind that graduate schools may require a reading knowledge of a world language, usually French, German, or Spanish. This track is designed for students most interested in the scientific aspects of psychology, particularly for those who are considering graduate work in experimental or clinical psychology. Most Ph.D. programs in experimental or clinical psychology require the types of undergraduate courses included in this track. Students completing this track earn a Bachelor of Science degree.
