BS - Psychology
The BS degree is a regimented degree plan for students who wish to develop a focused set of skills in pre-selected areas so they can apply these skills in a technical setting or seek advanced graduate training. The BS degree program has more course requirements than the BA (i.e., fewer electives). The degree plan emphasizes research focused scientific and methodological training, as well as breadth in pre-selected areas of psychology and other fields (biology, chemistry, philosophy). Students should seek early and frequent advice from departmental advisors.
