Bachelor of Arts in Child Development
The Child Development major serves undergraduate students who have professional and personal interests in children’s growth and change and who are interested in how that foundational knowledge may be applied in a variety of professional settings (e.g., preschools and K-12 education, child service agencies). The twin tracks of the Child Development major provide cutting-edge coursework and experiences that will fully prepare our students to pursue these types of professional interests. Additionally, because of the scientific basis of the Child Development major, those students wishing to pursue graduate work (i.e., Master’s level and beyond) will be highly qualified to apply to a variety of advanced degree programs (e.g., school psychology, special education, child development, developmental psychology, and child clinical psychology).

Bachelor of Arts in Psychology
The general objectives of the Bachelor of Arts in Psychology are to present the scientific and professional aspects of psychology to the undergraduate majoring in this field and to provide service courses as electives for students throughout the university. Psychology majors may plan to apply the knowledge and skills provided by a broad psychology background to many diverse employment opportunities which do not require graduate training. The department also offers course work leading to the Master of Arts or the Master of Science in Psychology. Students intending to enroll in these programs or another graduate school will find that the undergraduate program provides an excellent base for entry into graduate training.
