The Department of Psychology offers a bachelor of arts degree in general psychology. The curriculum provides a sound foundation in the principles of behavior, which will allow students to apply their knowledge of psychology in post-graduate occupations and graduate study. Advanced students are encouraged to undertake some form of independent learning experience through seminar courses, collaborative research, and internships.
Psychology graduates possess skills applicable to many careers in business, human services, and government. Graduate training in psychology broadens their opportunities, particularly in areas of mental health, education, industrial planning, and research.
