What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Science in Psychology is designed specifically for students who intend to continue their study of psychology at the graduate level, either in research or clinical programs. This comprehensive degree program also is a suitable major for pre-medical students. You will study general and experimental psychology, neuroscience and psychological statistics, and have access to a wide range of fascinating electives to satisfy your psychology course requirements. In addition, the 120-credit program provides the opportunity for study in mathematics, biology and chemistry and includes electives from the fields of political science, economics, sociology, geography, anthropology and fine arts.

As a psychology major, you will undertake a survey of current knowledge and viewpoints about the science of behavior and cognitive processes. You will learn the research methods by which such knowledge is obtained, and be given the opportunity to study in greater depth basic psychological processes, their development, the nature of behavioral aberrations, their treatment, and selected applications of this knowledge. Recent graduates have continued on to graduate studies in fields such as neuroscience and clinical psychology, and have continued to jobs in settings such as hospitals.
