About the Program

The B.A. program teaches you about the science of Psychology. Students learn basic findings and theories in the field of Psychology and learn about the methods through which that knowledge is generated. It is not an applied program. In other words, more formal training is needed after the B.A. degree be a licensed clinician/counselor/ therapist/ psychologist who provides direct services to people. The B.A. in Psychology provides a useful course of study that will enable students to pursue an advanced degree.
