Understand their inner world. Help them thrive in the outer world.
Pfeiffer University’s B.A. in Psychology equips students with knowledge that will set their feet on a path toward helping others enjoy more fulfilling lives.
Our psychology program guides students in honing skills like gathering, analyzing, interpreting and reporting data. You’ll learn to design and carry out research and understand developmental psychology across the life-span. The program will prepare you to pursue graduate work in areas like social work, counseling, or further psychology study.
The four-year Bachelor of Arts in Psychology program builds a rich understanding of psychology on a foundation of liberal arts education. During approximately 80 hours of general education, students will examine history, literature, math, and science—each of which influence the study of psychology in meaningful ways. Students will then take 40 hours of courses specific to psychology and will learn key data, research, and writing methods for careers in the field of psychology.
Many B.A. in psychology graduates go on to pursue master’s level work in psychology or related fields. Others may pursue roles such as:
- Career counselor
- Case manager
- Social worker
