Degree Details

Bachelor of Science in Psychology

Program Type:

At LSUA, Psychology students don’t just learn in the classroom. Instead, our professors routinely take material from the classroom out into the real world in order to give students the experiences they need and want.

We have four full-time Ph.D. Psychology faculty members, each of whom specialize in a different area of psychology making it possible for students to tailor the program to their own interests. With small classes sizes, our professors are also accessible and get to know their students on a one-on-one level.

Our Psychology professors also work hard at connecting our students to the community through internships, volunteer opportunities through the Psychology Club, and the practicum program. At LSUA, Psychology students are challenged on a daily basis both inside and outside the classroom by engaging in debates, discussions, and activities.

 At LSUA, a Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree sets graduates up to enter a number of different careers. Our graduates are employed as role models in the banking, education, criminal justice, and medical fields. Additionally, the degree gives students the ability to be successful in graduate school and beyond.
