The Psychology and Applied Therapies undergraduate programs provide you with the opportunity to develop unique specializations in the fields of psychology, counseling and behavioral sciences.
The undergraduate Psychology and Applied Therapies programs encompass five diverse, theoretical, research and applied subjects for you to explore. The Bachelor's degrees in these areas prepare you for graduate schools in fields such as counseling or clinical psychology, art therapy or expressive art therapy, neuroscience, social work, education and nursing. If you choose not to go on to graduate school, you may also seek jobs in a diverse range of professions, including counselors, social workers, special education assistants, rehabilitation specialists, and therapeutic aides.
The two Bachelor of Arts majors offer specific theoretical and research-oriented perspectives: Psychology is a clinically focused and research-oriented degree path, while Holistic Psychology is a major examining healing research and practice around the world.
Three applied Bachelor of Science programs consider the practice of psychology through the lenses of Counseling, Art Therapy, and Expressive Arts Therapy. You will have the opportunity to explore classes from across all of these disciplines. Your classwork is combined with research on childhood and cross-culture psychology to address important social concerns such as homelessness, poverty and trauma.
All faculty members in the undergraduate Psychology and Applied Therapies program are clinicians or applied scientists, providing you with access to personalized instruction in all chosen fields. All programs require faculty-supervised internships that offer you the knowledge, skills and ethics to thrive in your professional fieldwork settings.
