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 postgraduate study in many professions. However, it does not lead to professional licensure and does not have a clinical emphasis.
