Psychology is the study of the mind and human behavior. This discipline works in research and administration to help understand people, their capabilities, traits, and behavior and to explain their needs. Students majoring in psychology may earn either the Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degree. The psychology coursework is identical; however the BA degree requires courses in a foreign language whereas the BS degree requires additional coursework in physical and biological sciences. Students who study psychology are prepared to enter a variety of employment opportunities (such as business, human resources, education, etc.) as well as many graduate and professional programs (such as medical school, law, psychology, etc.).
