Psychology (B.A.)

My degree will not only afford me opportunity but, it's truly bigger than me. I strongly believe it will help me better my community and the lives of so many more. As long as I can remember, I've wanted to be a physician. I don't see myself doing anything else for the rest of my life.

Tyler Carr, Psychology/Pre-Med Major

About the Psychology Bachelor's Degree Program

Embark on a journey of learning how people truly work — yourself, those around you, and our influence in the world. You’ll master the arts of thinking critically, scientific reasoning and how to effectively apply research methods. Immerse yourself in special topics such as trauma-informed care, the human/animal bond, popular psychology, and even delve into the legitimacy of pseudo-sciences. You’ll graduate prepared to pursue a master’s degree, doctoral studies, or to enter the career of your choice.
