Psychology

The department offers three programs. One program leads to a Bachelor of Arts  degree and is designed for students who wish to pursue a major in psychology that emphasizes general studies, or who wish to develop secondary concentrations, e.g., in one of the social sciences or in the business area. The second program leads to a Bachelor of Science degree and is designed for students who wish to pursue a major in psychology that emphasizes the natural sciences. This program is well-suited for those who want a dual major or minor in biology, chemistry or physics, or for those who intend to do graduate work in areas of psychology where a strong background in science is advantageous. The third program also leads to a Bachelor of Science degree and is designed for students who are seeking New York state teaching certification in Child Education. This degree program trains students to teach in both special education and regular education settings.
