Students majoring in Psychology (either B.A. or B.S. degree) may choose to complete a concentration, which provides depth and breadth of knowledge in a particular area of psychology. These specialized curricula are designed to prepare students interested in bachelor-level careers with skills that can enhance their occupational opportunities, and to provide training for advanced studies in these and allied areas.
Concentrations are offered in Developmental Psychology, Human Services Psychology, and Biopsychology. Concentration coursework can be used to partially fulfill major requirements (some domain and upper-level requirements); however, students must ensure that they take additional coursework such as their core requirements to satisfy all requirements for the major. Completion of a concentration is recognized with a certificate from the Department, but does not show on a student’s transcript. In exceptional circumstances, some flexibility in fulfilling requirements may be permitted.
