Bachelor of Science in Psychology

A student who completes the psychology curriculum receives a Bachelor of Science degree and preparation for a career in teaching, business, or law, as well as for graduate work in clinical, applied, or academic psychology. A psychology minor complements any line of study.

The B.S. in psychology require a total of 36 credit hours in psychology, excluding those counted toward general curriculum requirements. At least two-thirds of these credit hours must be 3000- or 4000-level courses, and no more than 39 hours in psychology may be counted toward the degree. Given that the major allows flexibility, students are strongly urged to check with their advisors to select courses in a meaningful order and in relation to their own career plans.
