A Double Major in Psychology and Human Services is an outstanding opportunity for a challenging interdisciplinary experience. The Psychology and Human Services programs share similar goals – with slightly different emphases. Both programs provide students with a solid foundation in psychological, social and developmental theory. Students in both programs also complete a field work experience and a senior capstone paper.
Students may obtain a double major in Psychology and Human Service by completing the concentration requirements for Psychology (36 credits), the concentration requirements for Human Services (42 credits), an additional 6 credits in general electives and the University Core requirements (36 credits).
Those completing this major are prepared either to pursue careers in social service agencies or to seek graduate study; it is an excellent preparation for seeking a Master’s in Social Work, for example
