The Bachelor of Arts in Psychology program expands your knowledge and understanding of life's most fascinating subject — the human psyche.

Psychology provides you with insight into human development, personality, behavior and attitude. These insights lead to advantageous wisdom you'll use throughout your life, in personal relationships and in the workplace.

In this program, you'll have the opportunity to explore a range of topics from neurotransmitters to nurturance, from prenatal brain development to cutting-edge research on Alzheimer's disease.

Psychology students:

  • Explore how people learn and develop
  • Learn what drives personalities, intellects and emotions from infancy to maturity
  • Analyze the internal and external influences on thought, behavior, learning and development
  • Learn how to conduct and interpret research
  • Gain the skills needed to help others grow, evolve and heal
