Overview

The Department of Psychology offers a B.A. and a B.S. degree with a major in psychology and is responsible for administering the B.S. degree with a major in neuroscience, which is an interdisciplinary major between the Department of Psychology, Department of Biology, and the Miller School of Medicine. Both of these programs are highly- competitive but the neuroscience program specifically requires some of the highest admission standards of any undergraduate major (1360 SAT or 30 ACT).
