Located in the Health Sciences Building, the Psychology Department offers the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and the Bachelor of Science (B.S) degrees in psychology. Both degrees have the same general education and psychology requirements. The B.A. includes an emphasis on foreign language; whereas the B.S. includes an emphasis on math or science. Both degrees provide an excellent foundation for students who wish to earn advanced degrees in pursuit of a career in psychology. Nearly half of recent graduates have entered into master's or doctoral programs while others have begun and established careers in human and social services, research, and business.
