My name is Dr. Laura May and I am the Department Chair and Program Director of the Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree program within the College of Health Professions.

The Bachelor of Arts in Psychology program is designed to educate students in broad-based general education as well as the specific sub-disciplines within the field of psychology.

The degree is best suited for students who are interested in having a very flexible degree that they can really apply to whatever their interests are. As our students often times are interested in the possibility of pursuing masters degree programs beyond the undergraduate, they are afforded the opportunity to learn a lot within the various sub-fields of the disciplines such as abnormal psychology, human growth and development, social and personality psychology.

Other learning objectives within our program are centered around developing critical thinking skills, so the analytical skill set is very important to any career that they pursue and definitely graduate school beyond.
