For the Psychology major, a student may choose either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science. There is no difference between a B.A. and a B.S. in psychology in terms of the required classes. Students considering a career in a field that involves the natural sciences (e.g. psychiatry, neurobiology, etc.) normally would select the B.S. A B.A. degree is more appropriate for students considering a career in other areas of psychology (e.g. clinical, counseling, social, developmental, etc.). The student’s psychology advisor will be able to help answer questions.
At least 20 credit hours in the major must be taken in the Nebraska Wesleyan Psychology Department. At least 12 hours of the major must be in upper level courses (3000-4990).
