BA in Psychology

*Available Evenings

Overview:

Psychology emphasizes the development of an understanding of factors important in determining behavior. Introductory courses present basic psychological principles; upper-level courses provide opportunities for further work in areas of special interest. Independent study allows the student to design and carry out original research. Internships in community settings enable the student to make practical application of psychological principles.

Evening Programs

All courses required for completion of the majors in Psychology and Human and Community Services are offered in the evenings or on the weekend or online. Some requirements may be offered only in a summer term. While the Psychology major is also offered during the day, completion of the major in Human and Community Services may require taking courses at those times.
