The courses required for the 39-hour bachelor of arts psychology major reflect the diversity of the many subfields in psychology.

Graduates of the program are prepared for advanced study in psychology and related disciplines as well as employment in professional entry-level positions in human service settings and mental health facilities. A psychology major is also an excellent way for students to prepare for careers in law, business, human resources management, advertising, and sales. Psychology majors are encouraged to become involved in research and/or to complete a practicum or internship in the field.
