Undergraduate Programs in Psychology

*************

SPRING 2019 REGISTRATION NOTE: Most Psychology classes for SPRING 2019 are now at capacity. We cannot add students to a class that is full.  

*************

The Psychology Department offers several academic and research opportunities for students. These include a bachelor of arts (BA) major, bachelor of science (BS) major, and a minor. Students planning to pursue a career in which a background in psychology is useful, such as business, communications, or social services, will find the BA degree to be an appropriate track. Students interested in pursuing professional or research careers in psychology are encouraged to consult with their academic advisor for advice on whether the BA or BS degree is most appropriate to meet their long-term goals.
