Bachelor of Science in Psychology

Are you someone who works closely with people and wants to gain insight into human behavior? Our Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree program can give you a solid foundation into the cognitive and affective processes that underlie human development and behavior — so you can become a more effective manager, supervisor, educator or human services professional. The curriculum, which includes courses like Human Motivation and Theories of Personality, emphasizes development of communication, critical thinking, problem- solving and collaboration skills. The bachelor's degree in psychology is a foundation for later post-graduate study in many professions. However, it does not lead to professional licensure and does not have a clinical emphasis.
