Overview

The Bachelor of Science degree program in Psychology at Wilmington University provides a solid, broad-based education. Psychology addresses behavior, thought, and intelligence. It includes the study of the brain, learning, and development in children, adolescents, and adults, and social interactions and group behavior. Because psychology spans the natural and social sciences, it provides an excellent domain in which to learn skills in analytic reasoning, problem solving, statistics, and working with people. The major gives all students a solid grounding in research and writing along with the opportunity to learn from current professionals in the field.

Learning outcomes

A degree in psychology builds cutting edge skills through courses on the most profound of all questions: the why and how of human behavior and thought. For those students interested in becoming psychologists, the requirements for the psychology major have been established to provide a sound foundation for graduate work in psychology and other related fields such as social work, education, and family science.

Not all psychology majors become psychologists. Students who major in psychology enter cutting-edge careers in business, information technology, marketing, health care, law, research, education, social work, and beyond.
