Bachelor of Science in Psychology

Students on Summer 2022, Fall 2022, or Spring 2023 requirements PSYBS

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.

    2. Major Minimum Grade. Except for the GPA requirement, a grade of C- or higher is required for a course to count toward a requirement in the major.
    3. Major Upper Division Credit Hours. At least 18 credit hours in the major must be completed at the 300–499 level.
    4. Major Residency. At least 18 credit hours in the major must be completed in courses taken through the Indiana University Bloomington campus or an IU-administered or IU co-sponsored Overseas Study program.

Major Area Courses

Unless otherwise noted below, the following courses are considered in the academic program and will count toward academic program requirements as appropriate:

  • Any course at the 100–499 level with the PSY subject area prefix—as well as any other subject areas that are deemed functionally equivalent
  • Any course contained on the course lists for the academic program requirements at the time the course is taken—as well as any other courses that are deemed functionally equivalent—except for those listed only under Addenda Requirements
  • Any course directed to a non-Addenda requirement through an approved exception

    This program of study cannot be combined with the following:

    • Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (PSYBA)
    • Bachelor of Science in Clinical Psychological Science (CLPSYSCIBS)
