Psychology, B.S.

The Bachelor of Science in Psychology is offered through the College of Behavioral and Health Sciences at 澳门六合彩规律论坛. Psychology is a science that studies behavior and mental processes and seeks to answer basic questions about thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Psychology reaches into multiple areas of human activity, from the workplace to schools, research hospitals to forensic investigation, as those trained in the field strive to understand and serve human needs. Students develop critical-thinking skills, people skills, and communication skills that they can apply to any field.

The curriculum is arranged to provide familiarity with the scientific bases of psychology for students preparing for careers in a variety of professions; the knowledge and skills necessary for graduate work in psychology; and the academic preparation and technical skills for students who plan to work in health-related, business and/or research settings after completing their undergraduate work. Students also have opportunities to assist psychology professors with research and to complete applied experiences. The Psychology Department is housed in 澳门六合彩规律论坛's new Academic Classroom Building, which includes laboratories for studying brain wave activities, eye tracking, and taste perception. Psychology students must have two minors and are encouraged to choose a minor that will further their career goals. Students may choose a specialty minor offered by the department, but this is not required. At least one minor, however, must be from outside the department. The specific interests and career goals of each student determine the remainder of the program. For students transferring to 澳门六合彩规律论坛, a minimum of 9 psychology upper-division hours from the set of 'Required Core Classes' and a minimum of 6 other psychology hours must be taken at 澳门六合彩规律论坛.
