What will I learn?

Our goal is to provide students with a broad background in psychology, as well as to prepare students for graduate training or for entry into careers related to psychology. Modern psychology is the scientific study of brain, mind, and behavior, and is an exciting, rapidly expanding, and ever-changing field of scientific inquiry.

As a discipline, psychology is exceedingly rich and diverse, encompassing a variety of theoretical and applied points of view, such as the behavioral, biological, clinical, cognitive, developmental, evolutionary, and social perspectives.

Psychology is the scientific study of mind and behavior. It encompasses a variety of theoretical and applied points of view, such as the behavioral, biological, clinical, cognitive, developmental, evolutionary, and social perspectives. We provide students with a solid background in psychology, as well as to prepare students for graduate training or for entry into careers related to psychology. While the BA in psychology requires a foreign language and a minor, these are optional for a BS. The bachelor of science requires additional credits in psychology and two additional math/science electives.

Applied Behavior Analysis

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a systematic approach for influencing socially important behavior through the identification of reliably related environmental variables and the production of behavior change techniques that make use of those findings. The purpose of the Applied Behavior Analysis concentration in psychology is to provide students with the background necessary for working with individuals with behavioral problems in supervised settings. There are a number of agencies which provide such services, and they often must hire students without this background, and then train them onsite. This concentration is at the forefront of a movement toward preparing graduates for entry-level positions in applied behavior analysis. In addition, interested students who meet the criteria for internships may explore opportunities in an area with high demand for those with bachelor’s degrees.
