Overview of Undergraduate Program
A Bachelor of Art (BA) degree in Psychology is useful preparation for many occupations and for life generally. While you will not be called a psychologist after finishing your BA degree, you will be able to apply your knowledge of fundamental psychological concepts, methods, and findings.
- A BA in Psychology should help to prepare you for any position that requires a solid understanding of human behavior.
- We also believe that a degree in Psychology can provide a basis for personal growth through meeting academic challenges and through learning about how people deal with their environment, themselves, and those with whom they interact.
- The CSUS undergraduate program in Psychology allows students to develop broad-based knowledge of Psychology and research skills. Students in our program study various aspects of human behavior.
- They study biological, developmental, social, and cognitive and learning processes of human behavior.
- Undergraduate students also have the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in the form of faculty-supervised research projects and fieldwork experiences (please see the research/internships page for more information)
- Each year about 300 students work with faculty on research projects or work in various organizations and community service agencies in the Sacramento community such as the Suicide Prevention Service and the California Youth Authority.
