We offer three undergraduate psychology degrees and a minor.

Psychology (BA)

Bachelor of Arts

The B.A. in Psychology is a good option for candidates who want to explore other disciplines, such as literature, political science, or writing in greater depth. This might be used to ready them for a specialized field such an entry into non-profit work, journalism, social work, or counseling. It also well positions candidates who are striving to be bilingual, which is an area of need in human services work.

Psychology (BS)

Bachelor of Science

The B.S. in Psychology is a good option for candidates who want to emphasize their research and writing skills, or emphasize biology and other science areas. Such candidates often have an eye toward further graduate study in psychology or related disciplines, especially in STEM fields. This degree is often pursued by those who enjoy math and science, and see themselves in an analytical or technical field.
