Major in Psychology

The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Psychology emphasizes integrating and applying scientific methodology to the study of human behavior. Students develop an approach to learning that combines empirical, objective methodology, statistical techniques, and theoretical analysis of human behavior. Graduates are expected to have the knowledge and data analysis skills that would support graduate study in any of the specialty areas of psychology. They will be well prepared for employment in positions requiring the understanding and motivation of others. Examples of such employment include positions in personnel work, social services, and mental health agencies, law enforcement, and sales.

The Major in Psychology consists of 41 credit hours of course work in psychology (see the proposed curriculm below). To obtain a departmental recommendation for graduate study, the student should also take PSYC 420 (Research Project).
