If you ever wanted to learn how the human mind works, and why people behave the way that they do, a major in psychology may be perfect for you.The Psychology Department offers flexibility by allowing students to choose either the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science route. Although the core coursework is the same for both (listed below), there are some slight differences:Bachelor of Arts: A candidate for the BA in psychology must complete a 20 hour sequence of out-of-department courses as approved by the Psychology faculty. Generally, this will be a sequence of courses in one department or area related to the student's academic or occupational goals. The BA degree also requires completion of 10 hours of a single foreign language.Bachelor of Science: A candidate for the BS in Psychology must complete 20 hours of course work in Natural Science and/or MathematicsWe recommend the BS option for students intending doctoral study. Beginning Fall 2011, the Psychology Department is pleased to announce new curriculum. This will align the department with the American Psychological Association's standards for undergraduate majors. If you have any questions, please contact your advisor.
