Bachelor of Arts - Psychology
The Bachelor of Arts degree program in psychology is designed to serve the student seeking a terminal liberal arts degree, as well as the student who is preparing for graduate training in psychology or allied fields. Many career opportunities exist in mental health, schools, industry, and government service for program graduates.
In addition to completing four Foundation courses, students will choose their area of specialization in one of three tracks: General, Applied Mental Health, or Applied Developmental. The General track is designed to prepare students to go directly on to graduate study in psychology. The Applied tracks are designed to prepare students to go directly into the job market. A number of additional elective courses in psychology are available, allowing for the pursuit of special interests in the field or for a broadening of knowledge of the more specialized areas of psychology.
Students may also choose to take the junior level Internship in Psychology (PSYC395). This course allows the student to obtain intensive "on-the-job" experience prior to graduation.
