Bachelor of Arts
This degree is primarily intended for students who plan to enter the job market immediately after completing an undergraduate degree, although it could be used by qualified students as a foundation for post-baccalaureate training in psychology and closely related fields. Students earning the Bachelor of Arts in psychology are advised to complete additional work in another program closely tied to the work force (business, economics, mass communications, education, or sociology).
Bachelor of Science
Intended for students who are contemplating advanced work in psychology or a related field and for students entering the work force immediately after graduation, the Bachelor of Science degree more adequately prepares students for post-baccalaureate education and ensures a broad background in the scientific bases of psychology. Many graduate programs in psychology are increasing the required number of prerequisite hours in the natural sciences and mathematics, regardless of the concentration.
