About

 Students have three options for majors within our department: The Psychology major at Boston College is the most flexible, well suited to students who wish to pursue a minor in another area or to embrace the range of elective courses offered at the University. 

Overview

Our undergraduate curriculum is rooted in Boston College’s liberal arts education; our students reflect on the human condition from varied perspectives as they learn about seminal findings and discuss cutting-edge discoveries in psychology and neuroscience.

Faculty balance the teaching and mentorship of our students with the conduct of world-class research, providing our students with ample opportunities to learn by doing and to experience scientific discovery first-hand.

The Psychology B.S. from Boston College is designed for students who desire a more research-focused approach to psychological science.

Features

Students will take Psychology courses relevant to social, developmental, biological, and cognitive psychology and will learn how animal models can be used to inform human behavior. 

Together these courses will provide students with an appreciation for the theories that have been put forth to explain human behavior and for the importance of considering clinical, cultural, social, biological, and developmental factors when trying to understand why humans think, feel, and act as they do.

Both degree options introduce students to the broad range of topics that psychologists study, while also allowing students to choose an individualized course of study and focus on some aspects of psychology in greater depth.
