Psychological Sciences

Beyond core requirements, students complete the major requirements by choosing a concentration. Based on a student’s primary interests, the choice of a concentration enables the student to begin to prepare for post-baccalaureate work in psychology. Concentrations should be declared in the spring semester of the sophomore year.

The psychological sciences concentration is directed toward students who have an interest in pursuing doctoral studies in psychology. Students develop the skills and background necessary for producing and evaluating psychological research and applying research methodologies.
