Psychology is the study of human and animal behavior and experience (normal and abnormal) and the psychological, social, cognitive, and biological processes related to that behavior.
The Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree programrequires 42 credit hours. The student will choose one of four options for study:
- General Psychology
- Mental Health Psychology
- Developmental Psychology
- Human Resource Development Psychology (HRD)
A core group of subjects is common to all four options and comprises 22 credit hours of the major. The remaining 20 credit hours are selected by the student from a list of "guided electives" for the HRD, Developmental, and Mental Health options. For the General option, the student chooses 20 credit hours from any of the psychology courses offered at Northeastern State University.
The Human Resource Development option requires an 18 hour minor from four options (Business Minor for Non Business Majors or Management or Marketing or Safety Management – all of which have specific course requirements found in the NSU Undergraduate Catalog) from the College of Business and Technology.
An Associate of Science or Associate of Arts degree earned from Connors State College waives the general education requirements with the exception of pre-requisites of the major. All students must have demonstrated English Proficiency to graduate.
All students need to earn 60 hours of credit from a four year institution of higher learning in order to receive a Baccalaureate degree in Psychology.
