Students majoring in psychology may earn either the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. The psychology course requirements for the two degrees are identical; the two degree plans differ with respect to the requirements in other disciplines. For example, the B.A. degree requires courses in a foreign language and extra humanities hours, whereas the B.S. degree requires additional hours in the physical and biological sciences. The two degrees are offered to allow students to complete their non-psychology course of study in fields most relevant to their interests and/or career plans. Both degrees provide students with the necessary curriculum requirements to pursue graduate study in psychology, as well as in other professional fields, such as law and medicine. Students who qualify for the University Honors Program should contact the Department of Psychology Advising Office (Rm. 244 in Psychology Bldg.) about the department's own honors program, which places emphasis on small classes and independent research experiences.
