The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree

The curriculum for the B.S. in Psychology builds on the B.A. degree utilizing an interdisciplinary approach and is designed for students with an interest in research and the biological aspects of human and animal behavior. The additional credits in biology, chemistry, mathematics, research, and neuroscience-oriented psychology courses will enhance an undergraduate’s readiness for research at the graduate level, health care, health professions in medicine, and a multitude of other fields. Through these courses, B.S. students will receive further training in the empirically based, scientific study of behavior and psychological processes, with an emphasis on biologically based investigation.
