Suggested Grades: 10-12
Prerequisites: None
Our Psychology courses are being offered in a BLOCK since some colleges require both courses as prerequisites for their Nursing program, and some colleges require one while others require the other. Since most high school students when graduating do not know which Nursing college program they will get into, students will be able to complete both. PSY 1010 will also fulfill a course requirement for the Regents Scholarship. PSY 1100 is also a major requirement for most college Elementary Education programs.
