Applied Psychology Major — B.S.

The applied psychology B.S. program combines a traditional liberal arts education in psychology with a study of the key management and financial practices useful in virtually all careers. In addition to a core set of courses, students also select additional coursework in the area to which they want to apply psychology. Students connect classroom studies with hands-on, real-world experience through a major-related internship and/or research experience. Graduates are prepared to use their major-related knowledge, skills, and values in occupational pursuits in a variety of settings or in pursuing graduate study in psychology or related fields. Students interested in this major should contact the program coordinator, Ann Lynn, associate professor of psychology.
