The Psychology Department offers a B.S. degree in Psychology with concentrations in Psychology and Human Resource Management. The Psychology concentrations are chosen by students who (1) plan advanced study in the field, (2) intend to seek employment in a related area upon graduation, or (3) seek a liberal arts background within the Psychology major. Many graduates enter master’s degree programs in counseling or related fields. All students in all concentrations must obtain grades of C or higher in PSY 1101, PSY 1151, and PSY 2206 to continue in the program. Students may retake these courses once to meet the standard. Those who fail to meet the standard will be advised in the selection of a new major.
Minors are available in Psychology and Psychology of Human Development. The Psychology minor provides a general survey of the field. The Psychology of Human Development minor provides more focused study in areas of child, adolescent, or adult development.
