About the Major

The Psychology department provides students with an understanding of the perspectives, content, and methods of science and the practice of psychology. This 45-credit major is intended for students who are interested in careers that would combine a background in psychology with work in fields such as social work, family studies, business, forensics, primate behavior, and other fields for which training in behavioral science would be useful. Students in the 45-credit major are required to complete either a minor or a double major.

Students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree must complete two years of a world language in high school or one year in college by the time they graduate.
