The Department of Psychology offers a bachelor of arts degree through the College of Science, Technology, and Health. Though psychology is both a behavioral science and a helping profession, most psychologists agree that graduate school is the appropriate site for professional training. As an undergraduate psychology major you will be introduced to the scientific study of basic psychological processes, principles and theories. There will not be an emphasis upon acquiring professional counseling skills.
