Curious about the science of the mind and behavior? Are you interested in conducting psychological research? Then the BS in Psychological Science degree is for you! The Bachelor of Science (BS) in Psychological Science is a degree designed for students who are interested in pursuing research-oriented careers that may or may not require graduate level training such as experimental psychology (e.g., human factors, I/O, neuroscience, social & personality, quantitative) and clinical psychology (PhD). We strive to make our students competitive for graduate school and industry by offering opportunities that will make them stand apart from the crowd.

Our curriculum is designed to provide our students with breadth and depth of knowledge in psychology as well as professional skills in research both inside and outside of the classroom. Along with other foundation courses, the degree requires a year-long research course sequence (i.e. Advance Research I and II) that provides students with the opportunity to conduct a human subjects research project from beginning to the end. The BS in Psychological Science major consists of 62 credits in psychology, 4 credits in Calculus, and 4 credits in Biological Science.

Students also have the opportunity to work closely with faculty mentors and peers to conduct research outside of the classroom either as a volunteer, for course credit (Research Clinic in Psychology) or paid through Federal Work Study funding. Our students have also presented their research at local, regional, national, and international conferences. We currently have 100 Psychological Science majors who often serve as our learning assistants, peer mentors, and tutors in the Psychology Department.

 **Please note that this degree is only offered in a face-to-face traditional classroom setting. While the degree can be completed on a part-time basis, the coursework is not offered at night.
