Undergraduate Overview

UG Home pageThe undergraduate psychology program is one of the largest in the College of Arts and Sciences and at the University of Miami.  The Department of Psychology offers a B.A. and a B.S. degree with a major in psychology and is responsible for administering the B.S. degree with a major in neuroscience, which is an interdisciplinary major between the Department of Psychology, Department of Biology, and the Miller School of Medicine. Both of these programs are highly- competitive but the neuroscience program specifically requires some of the highest admission standards of any undergraduate major (1360 SAT or 30 ACT).
