Graduates with a degree in Psychology will be able to:

  • Apply the major concepts, theoretical perspectives, and empirical findings of psychological principles to behavioral problems.
  • Analyze psychological phenomena through interpreting behavior, examining research, and applying scientific methodology.
  • Demonstrate research, writing, and presentation skills applicable to the field of psychology, specifically using APA style.
  • Evaluate the impact of cross-cultural differences on psychological development.

The BA in Psychology is offered by the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences through the College of Adult and Professional Studies. Classes are offered successively in the evenings and on Saturdays. The entire four years can be completed through the College of Adult and Professional Studies program. Semesters run on a non-traditional schedule. This program provides the opportunity for working adults who cannot currently attend the on-campus day program to pursue their studies in Psychology.
