Program Overview

The Bachelor of Arts Psychology major is intended for students who are interested in careers that would combine a background in psychology with work in fields such as social work, family studies, business, forensics, primate behavior, and other fields for which training in behavioral science would be useful.

This degree provides two paths of study. Students in the 45-credit major are required to complete either a minor or a double major. If a student decides later to pursue graduate school, the core courses in the 45-credit major may transfer into the 60-credit major. Psychologists study animal and human behavior and related mental, physiological, and social processes in an attempt to understand the causes of behavior. They also apply knowledge already attained to the prevention and solution of both individual and social problems. Students can develop an understanding of the perspectives, content, and methods of the science and practice of psychology and prepare for graduate study.
