  • Slide 1

    1. 1. PSY 301 Gary S. Katz, Ph.D.
    2. 2. Course Numbering System - CSU 001-099: Courses which carry no credit toward a degree or credential. Generally remedial or subcollegiate-level in content. 100-199: Lower-Division, introductory courses which constitute the beginning of college work in a major or in general education and which require no previous college experience. Open to Upper-Division students. 200-299: Lower-Division courses of freshman and sophomore level. Open to Upper-Division students. Constitute intermediate step between beginning and advanced work in a given field; general education courses which require previous college experience; courses which develop advanced skills; courses with specific prerequisites.
    3. 3. Course Numbering System - CSU 300-399: Upper-Division courses, normally taken by junior and senior students, which do not give credit toward a master's degree. Sophomore students may enroll in 300 level courses, but freshmen may not without special permission. Advanced courses constructed upon Lower-Division work; traditional survey courses whose breadth tends to preclude depth; Upper-Division prerequisites to specialized work in a major; general education courses for Upper-Division students; core courses in professional education; the highest number for courses primarily concerned with development of skills.
    4. 4. Course Numbering System - CSU 400-499: Upper-Division courses which may, with approval, give credit toward a master's degree if taken as a post-graduate. Limited to more advanced courses, normally taken by senior and graduate students, which have content that requires a high degree of intellectual maturity on the part of the student. Should also meet one or more of the following specific criteria: a) have specific prerequisites at the 100- 200 level; b) be supported by a substantial body of 100-300-level offerings from which a student could normally be expected to gain adequate background for the 400-level course; c) be restricted in scope, aiming at depth rather than breadth. ** NOTE: Passing the UDWPE with a score of 8 or greater is a PREREQUISITE for all 400-level courses in the Psychology Major!
    5. 5. Upper Division Writing Proficiency Exam (UDWPE)  Students who have completed 56 units and have met the Lower-Division writing requirement shall be required to take an essay examination.  Undergraduate students are encouraged to take the Upper Division Writing Proficiency Examination (UDWPE) as early as possible after (a) above has been met, but must take the UDWPE no later than the semester in which 90 units are completed.  Students who have not taken the UDWPE by the completion of 90 units may have an advisement hold placed on their subsequent registration (s).  Students who fail the exam shall be permitted to repeat the examination. Subsequent attempts, however, shall be permitted only after the students have taken further steps to improve their writing deficiencies, such as completion of an appropriate course in writing.  The examination shall consist of an essay on an assigned topic evaluated by the faculty. The evaluation criteria shall include a demonstration of 1) analytic skills, 2) logical organization, 3) effective development, 4) appropriate diction, 5) correct grammar and mechanics.  Administrations of the examination will be announced in the CSUN Schedule of Classes and Enrollment Guide. The examination will be scheduled at least five times within an academic year. Registration cards are available at University Cash Services and at the Testing Office. Certification of graduation writing competence shall be transferable from one CSU campus to another.  http://www.csun.edu/udwpe/
    6. 6. Course Numbering System - CSU 500-599: Courses intended primarily for graduate students which may be taken by advanced undergraduate students for baccalaureate credit. Content requires significant independent thinking on the part of the student and offers opportunity for research. Should also meet one or more of the following criteria: a) have specific prerequisites at the 400 level; b) be supported by a substantial body of 300- 400-level offerings from which a student could normally be expected to gain adequate background for the 500-level course; c) be especially designed for a graduate curriculum (e.g., an introductory course to current topics in the field).

    21. 21. Other factors to consider  “Reality” – enrollment issues are a big factor this year.  Is this a faculty member with whom I would like to work on a research project? Internship supervision?  Do I have the necessary pre-requisite courses?  Can I take the required co-requisite courses?
