Our Bachelor of Arts in Psychology offers excellent training in how to understand human behavior using scientifically rigorous methods. The program reflects current trends in the field of psychology through its emphasis on the science of psychology, integrated via the research sequence, and through the inclusion of recent trends in psychological theory and practice, such as child psychopathology, environmental psychology and legal psychology.

Students focus in one of six key subdisciplines: Cognitive/Neuroscience, Social, Applied, Clinical/Personality, Developmental or the Industrial-Organizational Track. Students have a variety of opportunities to become directly involved in ongoing research, participate in our active student organizations, and conduct their own studies through our research labs.

A degree in Psychology provides a solid foundation of knowledge applicable to such fields as business, education, law, medicine and social work.

An Online BA in Psychology is also available.

Industrial-Organizational Psychology Track

This track is for students interested in applying the principles of psychology to workplace issues. Students completing this track will be able to work with organizations in designing selection systems, validating performance assessment systems, and developing and delivering training programs. They will also be able to work with consulting companies that design and market selection and training programs. Students will also be competent for managing leadership development programs; talent management, especially High Potential (HIPO) programs; and occupational health and safety initiatives.

Combined BA/MPH in Health Policy and Management Pathway

The Combined BA/MPH Pathway is designed for outstanding undergraduate students. It provides a strong base of knowledge and skills in psychology, and at the same time accelerates completion of the Master of Public Health in Health Policy and Management. Students may take advantage of the overlap of courses in the two programs to receive their MPH degree in a shorter time than would otherwise be possible. Consult the Undergraduate Catalog for requirements.
