The undergraduate major in psychology provides an introduction to the methods by which the behavior of humans and other organisms are studied, and to the biological conditions and social factors that influence thought and behavior. The program emphasizes a strong foundation in quantitative and research methods. Students who wish to pursue graduate study in psychology or related professional schools will have opportunities to participate in research.
The Department of Psychology offers two degree options for undergraduate students - A Bachelors of Arts (B.A.) degree and a Bachelors of Science (B.S.) degree. Students in the B.A. and B.S. programs should acquire the tools and experiences necessary for future training or work in the behavioral and social sciences. These include a foundation in research methods, critical and creative problem solving skills, and the communication skills necessary to impart this knowledge to others.
