Undergraduate Program Information

Psychological scientists specialize in many different areas, such as clinical psychology, counseling psychology, developmental psychology, physiological psychology, neuropsychology, industrial/organizational psychology, educational psychology, experimental psychology, cognitive psychology, social psychology, and cross-cultural psychology. Because the interests and training of the faculty members in the department cover all of these areas, we offer a wide range of courses in the undergraduate curriculum. The vast majority of the classes are daytime, in-person with occasional offerings of evenings or online.

Students should plan their studies in consultation with an academic advisor early in and throughout their college career.

Choosing a BA or BS

Students with this choice often ask which degree (BA or BS) will look better on their résumé as they go into the job search after graduation. Most students choose to complete the BS degree as it is already in the major.
