Medaille Faculty Mary Louise Hill

Psychology is more than just the study of the human mind and behavior. A Psychology degree can take many paths, from an exploration of child development, to studies of abnormal human behavior, to research in neuroscience. Along the way, students are exposed to basic psychology concepts, historical and current theories, and a rigorous training in methodology and research.

The Bachelor of Arts program in Psychology prepares students for graduate work in psychology, business, human services or law. Graduates enter into career fields where knowledge of human behavior and motivation is valuable, like human resources, marketing, sales and social services.

A unique feature of the B.A. degree program is the ability to tailor the Psychology program to fit your career goals and objectives.


The Psychology program is part of the Social Sciences department, which includes faculty members who specialize in areas such as child and youth services, history, political science and sociology. More about our faculty >>

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
