Bachelor of Arts in Psychology
Psychology helps us to understand behavior, thoughts and feelings—our own and those of others. We can use what we learn in psychology to help us improve relationships and understand ourselves as well as others.
Research done by psychologists has had tremendous impact on the way that we live and the quality of our lives. Thanks to research originated by psychologists, we know that babies do better when they’re touched, massaged and held. This knowledge, when applied to premature babies, has allowed them to respond and go home more quickly.
These are just a few of the many opportunities available to people with degrees in psychology. Cal U offers a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology —general psychology. Our program provides training in the theories and practices of psychology, combined with a liberal arts background. We also offer a minor in psychology.
