The Psychology major in the Bachelor of Professional Studies degree program focuses on the study of mental processes and behavior. Psychology applies knowledge in these areas to various spheres of human activity including problems of individual’s daily lives and the treatment of mental illness. While an undergraduate degree in psychology does not train you to become a professional psychologist, you will be prepared for careers that involve working with people in an increasingly complex society.

A bachelor's degree in psychology provides a great foundation whether you want to pursue an advanced degree in psychology, social work, or other areas of study, or begin a career working with people in areas such as sales, business, counseling, education, or health care. A bachelor’s degree in psychology best prepares you for entry-level jobs that require specific kinds of skills: people skills, analytical skills, writing skills, and research skills.

If you love working with people, a degree in psychology is a great place to start.
