Program Overview

Majoring in Psychology involves the study of the way humans and animals act, feel, think and learn. How are personality and social development influenced? What is the relationship between mind and body? How are statistical principles used to analyze social science data? You’ll develop lifelong skills in scientific thinking and in understanding human thought, behavior and interaction as you take 79 credit hours towards a Bachelor of Science degree. (The B.S. degree carries a larger course load for the major than the B.A. degree, with additional coursework in mathematics, chemistry or biology.)

Students graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Psychology develop lifelong skills in scientific thinking and understanding human thought, behavior, and interaction. The educational learning in combination with the research focused internship experience prepares students to enter a career of choice, medical school, or graduate school.
