A major in psychology is designed to help students gain an understanding of the science of human behavior and mental processes. Students will become familiar with research design as well as the contemporary research findings in the fields of abnormal psychology, counseling, social processes, personality, human development, biological psychology, and applied psychology. The psychology major is often used as a foundation for professional training in counseling, law, the ministry, or graduate study in psychology.

A psychology major has the option of graduating with a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree. As a requirement for graduation, all psychology majors must sit for a nationally normed exit examination in their senior year.
