The Psychology Program helps you understand the behavior and processes of organisms, and to learn to appreciate psychology as a discipline, a science and a profession. Our program is unique in it offers two different tracks within the degree program:
Bachelor of Arts in Psychology - This track is primarily if you plan to pursue employment immediately following completion of your undergraduate degree. It is offered both in-seat and online.
Bachelor of Science in Psychology - This track is intended for those who plan to pursue an advanced degree in psychology or related fields, such as social work.
Psychology is also available as a minor.
In large part, students in the BS and BA tracks complete the same sequences of courses to achieve their degrees. Students pursuing the BS track generally follow a curriculum that encompasses more math and science courses, while those pursing a BA track will take courses that include more generalized traditional liberal arts type courses.
Students must gain general admission to the University of Charleston. A visit to campus to meet with Admissions personnel and program faculty is strongly encouraged.
