Academic Programs

The department offers two degree programs in psychology: a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Arts. These programs are designed to prepare students for graduate studies in major areas of psychology, such as clinical, developmental, experimental, and social. Also, they meet the academic needs of students who are preparing for careers in health and education. Professionally-oriented courses, research experiences, practica, and close faculty-student mentoring are emphasized as a means of enabling students to reach their academic and professional goals.

Students who major in psychology may choose to pursue either the BA or the BS degree. The total number of semester hours required for an undergraduate degree in psychology is 120.
