# Bachelor of Science in Psychology

The Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology is designed for students desiring a career in industry or research. In addition to the broad coverage of modern psychology and the strategies and methods by which scientific knowledge is acquired in this field, the program emphasizes broad preparation in sciences and the development of math and computer skills. The B.S. degree program also requires more advanced courses and laboratory work in psychology than the B.A. program. B.S. psychology students are strongly encouraged to develop a concentration or specialization in the field as well as to get actively involved in research, thereby affording them the background and skills to be competitive for demanding graduate programs or employment in such fields as health care, medicine, business, and education. The student who graduates with a B.S. in psychology should be well prepared for graduate training in psychology and related fields, for professional schools, and for jobs (not necessarily in psychology) that use scientific training and quantitative techniques.
