Many graduate programs like their students to have basic coursework in the natural sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physics). These courses come in handy when the biological basis for behavior is covered during graduate training. Other courses such as anatomy, genetics and physiology are also helpful in graduate work.
Writing courses can assist you with the large amount of writing you will do while in a graduate program. A college level math course is also highly recommended.
