University of Bridgeport Psychology B.S.

Psychology is the science of behaviors, mental and emotional processes, development, and social interactions. As a psychology major, you will learn about the theories, researchers, and research findings related to how humans think and behave, and how we as a field try to describe, explain, predict, and influence human behavior and mental processes.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology prepares students for work that requires liberal arts training as well as psychological knowledge and skills, while also preparing the student for success in future graduate studies. The major provides students with a detailed awareness of the field of psychology, including its historical background, paradigms, methods, research findings, and applications. The major addresses the general areas of developmental, personality, social, cognitive, and abnormal psychology. It fosters the development of verbal, quantitative, analytical, and technological skills that are useful for work in psychology and related fields.

The B.S. Psychology degree program at UB will help prepare you for a wide range of Graduate School options (both at the M.A./M.S. and Ph.D./Psy.D. level) in areas such as:

  • Counseling
  • Education
  • Clinical Psychology

  • Educational/School Psychology
  • Industrial/Organizational Psychology
