Welcome to the Department of Psychology at the University of Michigan!

Students must apply to the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA). After completing pre-requisite courses, students may then declare one of our two majors.

Want a real student story? Meet a BCN and Psychology major and read about their paths within LSA and beyond.  

If you are interested in scheduling a prospective student appointment, please complete our Prospective Student Meeting Request Form and an advisor would be happy to meet with you to answer any questions you may have. 

Please find resources below to guide you on a tour of our department, the curriculum, and many of the opportunities that are available for our students.



"What can I do with a Psych/BCN major?" While Psychology and BCN are not applied majors leading to a specific career (i.e. Accounting), both majors, within a Liberal Arts education, will prepare students for a variety of careers. Use our Career Exploration section to find out what our recent graduates are up to and view alumni videos and profiles. Still unsure? Let Liberal Arts by the Numbers show you the power of a liberal arts education.


Our majors are competitive candidates for a variety of graduate and professional programs both within psychology as well as other fields. The top 3 programs our students report pursuing are Medical School, Master's of Social Work, and PhD programs in psychology. Survey data from our recent graduating class can be found on the Career Exploration page. Preparing for Graduate School will give you common options within and outside of psychology.
