An undergraduate major in psychology may be taken as liberal arts education, as preparation for graduate study in psychology, or as background for professional education in law and in the health professions. A student with a bachelor?s degree in psychology may qualify for a variety of positions including those in social sciences, mental health, corrections, rehabilitation, developmental disability centers, business, management, and public opinion surveying. Depending on professional goals, a minor in another discipline may be desirable. Students should consult with their academic advisers early in their undergraduate curriculum. The requirements of the program enable graduates to understand and apply the scientific principles, facts, and basic methods of psychology in their personal and professional activities. Graduates will demonstrate an understanding of the scientific method and will be able to apply that understanding to the study of human behavior and the study of mental processes. They will also demonstrate the ability to effectively communicate their knowledge of psychological concepts through both writing and speech. Graduates will demonstrate a respect for individual and cultural differences and for the ethical issues that relate to the practice of psychology in both research and clinical settings. Professional work with a job title of psychologist in academic, business, clinical, government, and school settings requires graduate degrees.
