Psychology (PSYC)


The department offers a psychology major leading to either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree. The choice of degree program should be determined after consultation with a member of the department. Both degree programs emphasize research methodology and would be appropriate for students interested in pursuing graduate study in psychology or allied fields. The B.S. program places greater emphasis on STEM curriculum and research training than does the B.A. program.

HONORS: An Honors Program in psychology is offered for qualified students; see department head for details no later than the winter term of the sophomore year.

Department Head: Karla Murdock
