The Bachelor of Science degree in psychology is designed to produce competitive applicants for graduate study. Students are challenged to think critically and to apply the method of scientific inquiry to increase understanding of the mind, brain, and behavior. Through the completion of the degree's 20-22 credit core requirements, students gain a strong command of research methodology that culminates in a required semester-long independent research study under the supervision of one of our faculty members. Additional coursework and practical experiences, including 17-19 credits of psychology electives, permits students to tailor their program of study to best prepare them to gain admission to a graduate degree program in a specialized area of the discipline.
With an advanced degree, you may pursue a career in such areas as clinical or counseling psychology, school psychology, sports psychology, legal psychology, or in academic positions such as a professor, administrator or researcher.
Recent graduates have been accepted to graduate programs at Indiana University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, California University, Bucknell University, Binghamton University, Old Dominion University, Millersville University, Marywood University and the University of South Carolina.
