Concentration Requirements

The Department of Psychology offers two BS concentrations: General​Cognitive Neuroscience​​, and Healthcare​. The BS concentrations are excellent options for students considering a career in healthcare or planning on attending graduate school.

Upon completion, students will be able to read and understand behavioral science data, design and conduct psychological research studies and apply research findings to everyday situations. Students will also gain a broad understanding of psychology as a behavioral science in both its research and applied aspects.

Both ​General and Cognitive Neuroscience concentrations require five core courses, three concentration courses and five upper-level courses. Students must also complete an Allied Field requirement in Biology and/or Math. The Healthcare concentration has no liberal studies scientific inquiry or Math and Technical Literacy requirements due to the additional Chemistry and other science classes. Review the Course Catalog to view curricular information and track your progress toward a BS degree in Psychology. ​​
