Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Psychology program is designed to offer small classes, and balanced coursework. 
The curriculum provides a broad background in the liberal arts and sciences, research skills and the understanding of human behavior. Within the psychology program, students will study how human behavior changes from infancy through old age. Students will learn how to critically evaluate research often reported in the popular media. Students will also be introduced to research techniques such as survey construction and systematic observation, which they will find useful in the workplace. Specific areas of human behavior such as behavior disorders, counseling techniques, and forensic psychology are examined through a choice of psychology electives.
