Psychology, B.S.


The Bachelor of Science degree program in Psychology focuses on the scientific study of behavior as it is influenced by physical, cognitive, emotional, environmental factors, and includes the analysis of behavior problems and disorders. This comprehensive program of study emphasizes instruction in the principles of the subfields of psychology which include developmental, abnormal, counseling, personality, measurement, and research methodology in psychology. Students complete a senior empirical research thesis which prepares them for success in graduate programs of their choice. Programs often include social work, public health, business, sports, law, human services, mental health counseling and psychiatric services. A required Field Experience in which they volunteer at local mental health agencies often gives students an advantage in obtaining entry-level employment with the agencies.
