Undergraduate Study in Psychology
The mission of the undergraduate program is to provide students with a fundamental understanding of the field of psychology, including its value as a scientific method for understanding human behavior and solving social and behavioral problems.
The department offers a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Psychology, a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Psychology, a minor in Psychology, and a certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis. The B.A. is an excellent option for those interested in Psychology and planning a career in a variety of areas that value scientific problem solving skills and an understanding of human behavior. The B.S. requires more hours in Psychology and is a good option for those planning a career in Psychology. The minor is an excellent way to incorporate Psychological Science-related skills into another major. The ABA Certificate prepares students to be Board Certified Associate Behavior Analysts (eligible to take the exam after completing the certificate).
