Psychological Science Track
The B.S. in Psychology, Psychological Science track, provides students a strong foundation of knowledge in various areas of psychology. This program also gives students the opportunity to thoroughly develop their skills in scientific inquiry and interpretation in psychology. Students must complete the two-semester independent research project, advised by resident faculty, as their experiential learning requirement prior to graduation. The experiential learning requirement in our program makes us unique, as every student obtains real-world experience in research that makes them particularly attractive to graduate programs, prior to graduation.
Future Opportunities Available to Graduates
Students who complete the B.S. in psychology have many opportunities open to them after graduation. They may plan to pursue graduate work in psychology, and would be well-prepared for rigorous scientific graduate programs such as clinical psychology or neuroscience. Graduates would also be competitive for other graduate programs such as organizational leadership, law, business, or various fields in the sciences or humanities. Alternatively, graduates may enter the workforce in fields such as laboratory science, technical or research environments, or business.
