About the B.S. in Human Services and Psychology Double Major
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).
Classes are conveniently scheduled so you can choose from evening, weekend and online courses. 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. This program is offered at our main Bridgeport campus, as well as the Waterbury Center location.
