Students can earn either the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in psychology. The primary difference between the two degrees has to do with their respective general education requirements and other non-major requirements. The B.A. degree is more of a traditional liberal arts degree, with such requirements as foreign language, math, science, literature, fine arts, and non-western culture. The B.S. degree has no foreign language requrement and there is a greater emphasis on math and science. Students are encouraged to consider where their own academic strengths and interests lie when deciding on which of the two degrees they will pursue.
