The Department of Psychology offers a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. Qualified students may pursue the honors degree in psychology. Three minors are also administered by the department. Students may pursue a minor in psychology or an interdisciplinary minor in either Child and Youth Studies or Neuroscience.
The psychology major is designed for students who desire to learn the fundamentals of behavioral science within the context of a traditional liberal arts education. Students receive a comprehensive exposure to the foundations of psychological theory and application, and are introduced to laboratory and field research. The psychology major prepares students for a wide variety of professional and business careers, and it provides the necessary foundation for graduate study in psychology or related disciplines (e.g., social work, counseling, law, education).
