  • Is a track concentration a requirement?
    • No, it is not a requirement, but . . .
    • It will enable you to specialize in a particular area of psychology.
    • It is unlikely that it will increase the number of classes you must take because the classes you will take to fulfill your concentration are probably the ones you are most interested in and would have taken anyway.
  • Application Procedure
    • Go to the department’s website and print out an application http://www.psych.iupui.edu/ungrad/docs/Application%20for%20a%20track%20concentration.pdf or pick up an application from the Psychology Office (LD 124).
    • Complete the application, and return it to the Psychology Office.
    • You will receive a letter confirming your application.
    • If you decide to switch concentrations, simply submit another application.
