Psychology is the scientific study of behavior - understanding how people and other organisms develop, learn, think, feel, act, and relate to one another. Psychology graduates develop an understanding of human behavior. Knowledge about human behavior can be useful in understanding one's everyday experience and can be applied to a wide range of career options. The program prepares students for entry-level jobs in psychology/mental health, social services, law, business, and education and for advanced degrees in psychology and other professions, such as law and business. Students majoring in psychology must complete a minimum of 54-57 semester hours of course work in the School of Psychology and must earn a minimum grade of C in each of these courses. To receive the Bachelor of Arts degree, a student must also complete nine hours of a foreign language.
