Advising message sent to advisees 3/8/15

Advisees,

I’ll officially begin advising on Thurs. March 15. I will begin accepting online advising submissions on that date.

Online advising instructions: http://www.selu.edu/resources/howdoi/leonet/quick_shts/online_advising_stud.pdf

Priority registration is approximately two weeks after that (excluding spring break) beginning on Monday April 9th and open registration begins a week after that on Monday April 16th. I will try to look over submissions daily; I’m usually able to get to it in the afternoons, around 2pm or so. Please give me at least 24 hours to get to your submission. If you have had one sitting for two days or more, please send me an email reminder about it.   

When you submit an online advising form be sure to put my name on it in the requested adviser box or I will not know to look at it. Also, remember that the advising block is not removed until you get back into the system and look at my comments after I have approved your advising form.  

Before doing on-line advising you should get a curriculum sheet (available on my advising page, link below) and fill in the classes you have already taken so that you can clearly see what you still need to take.  It is very important that you complete the correct curriculum sheet (identified by academic year) as course requirements vary by the student's catalogue year. Catalogue year usually coincides with the academic year the student became a psychology major at Southeastern. You may verify your catalogue year by checking the student summary section available to you in leonet

My advising page (all kinds of important information on advising can be found there, please visit). Follow link and then click on “class schedule and advising”: https://www2.southeastern.edu/Academics/Faculty/mrossano/ 


In addition to reviewing the appropriate curriculum sheet, it is imperative that you look over the information provided in the link below titled 'Curriculum Notes and Policies'. Students are responsible for knowing this information and for choosing their classes accordingly. 

Curriculum Notes and Policies  Catalogue Year Prior to 2017 - 2018

Curriculum Notes and Policies Catalogue Year 2017 - 2018       

Also, you are encouraged to read over the Psychology Department Advising Handbook which has been updated. This can be found on my advising page. Also the link directly to the document is provided below.

Most advising can be done online and that is the simplest most efficient way of doing it. However, if you need to see me the best thing to do is send me an email to set up an appointment (mrossano@selu.edu). Even if you see me in person you will still be required to submit an online advising form so that we have a permanent record.

Natural Science Two Course Sequence


A total of 11 semester hours in the Natural Sciences is required. These credits are to include General Biology 151 and Biology Lab 152.

In addition, students are required to take 4 credit hours of Physical Science that includes a 3 credit lecture course and an accompanying lab. Physics, Chemistry, and Space and
Earth Sciences are Physical Sciences. PHSC 101 and PHSC 102 do NOT meet the physical science requirement for our majors.

Lastly, students are required to complete a 3 credit lecture course that sequences from General Biology 151 or from the physical science course the student took.
GBIO 153, ZOO 250, and MIC 223 fulfill the 2nd science requirement.

Other courses that fulfill the 2nd science requirement depend on the physical science the student had taken previously:
ESSC 102 (for those who took ESSC 101),
ESSC 101 (for those who took ESSC 102),
CHEM 102 (for those who took CHEM 101),
CHEM 122 (for those who took CHEM 121) and
PHYS 192 (for those who took PHYS 191). 


Attention: Our department is offering a new course that will serve as an alternative to Psyc 335

Psyc 365 (Advanced Research Design and Analysis).The class will be taught by Dr. Baiamonte. This class may stand in place of Psyc 335 (i.e., it will serve as a substitute for the Psyc 335 requirement). See course description below. Students interested in this course must contact the department head (scoats@selu.edu) for permission to enroll.

Credit 3 hours. Prerequisite: Grades of B or higher in PSYC 220 and 221.The principles of research covered in Psychology 220 applied in an original experimental or non-experimental research project. Students will work collaboratively with faculty to devise and implement a research design and procedure. Results of the research will be communicated in a complete report following standard journal article format and presented at a regional or departmental event. This course is recommended for those intending to pursue graduate studies.

 

There have been some important changes in the Psychology curriculum and course requirements. A summary is presented below. Also, you are encouraged to read over the Psychology Department Advising Handbook which has been updated. This can be found on my advising page. Also the link directly to the document is provided below.

You may update your catalogue by completing a brief form in the psychology office, room 235 of Mims Hall. Math 105 is not recommended for students who intend to pursue graduate school.
