The Bachelor of Arts with a major in psychology is for the person seeking a career in psychology or a closely related field. The degree program provides a liberal-arts education in psychology as well as preparation for graduate school. A current IPFW student must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 to declare psychology as a major. After two consecutive semesters in which a psychology major’s cumulative GPA falls below 2.0, the student will no longer be eligible to be a psychology major. Two subsequent consecutive semesters with the cumulative GPA at or above 2.0 will permit a student to petition for reinstatement as a psychology major.
