PSI CHI – NU Chapter



Every psychology major is assigned an Academic Advisor, usually one of the full time faculty in the the department. Each student will meet with their advisor prior to scheduling class for the next semester. For example, students will meet with their advisor in October for Spring class recommendations and registration. Most psychology core courses are only offered once a year. Social Psychology is offered in the Fall, Advanced Topics is only offered in the Spring just to name a few. Scheduling a time with your Academic Advisor will help you to create an efficient and comprehensive class schedule. Be sure to visit the Academic Success Eagle page for more information on advising and course requirements.


Please remember that before registering for next semester, you must meet with your Academic Adviser. If you have any questions regarding the advising handout or major requirements, feel free to ask your faculty adviser.

International Study Tour

Every Spring, psychology majors embark on an International Field Study trip. The IFS is a combination of the Cultural Psychology and History & Systems courses. Students register for these two classes in the Spring semester of their junior year. The trip usually leaves several days after the Graduation event in mid-May and we travel to different Europrian countries for 12-14 days. Below you will see some information and pictures from previous trips. There is a course fee tied to the IFS trip. For questions about this year’s trip or to receive an application, please contact Amber Stowell at amber.stowell@northwestu.edu or 425.889.6286.
