The Bachelor of Science in Psychology is designed for students who want to make a difference in the lives of others or prepare for careers emphasizing basic or applied research.
Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes. Contemporary psychology is an interdisciplinary field with many pathways to careers that range from service to improve the well-being of individuals and the social health of communities to academic research and teaching.
The Psychology Program at CCGA offers career paths for service-minded individuals interested in improving lives and communities, and academic-minded individuals inclined toward basic or applied research.
Psychology Program Mission
The CCGA BS in Psychology program will prepare students for service and/or academic careers with a rigorous program of study in the science of psychology, including the theory, research, and quantitative methods of both basic and applied psychology.
The Psychology Program Offers Three Concentrations
- Psychology of Human Services, an emerging field at the intersection of psychology, health, and business
- Organizational and Community Leadership, an applied field, based in organizational and community psychology and business
- General Psychology, a traditional baccalaureate program of study in preparation for graduate work
