In UHart’s Department of Psychology, you prepare for a successful career or for acceptance into a first-rate graduate program through a variety of academic opportunities inside and outside of the classroom.

We offer a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology where you study human behavior and mental processes to give you an understanding of cognition, emotion, and social interaction. These skills will help you launch a successful career in business, industry, education, health services, personnel work, or in any field involving human relations.

Our minor in Psychology  is a great complement to other programs of study to enhance your academic and career goals.

If you are planning to attend graduate school to become a psychologist, the BA program is the first step in the process. Many of our graduates go on to advanced degrees at UHart including:.

Accelerated BA/MS in Organizational Psychology

MS in Organizational Psychology

MS and 6th Year Certificate-School Psychology

PsyD in Clinical Psychology

Dual MS in Organizational Psychology/MBA

Hands-On Experience

You can complete an internship to develop important applied skills and get field experiences that broaden and enhance what you learn in the classroom. Our students have interned at hospitals, mental health centers, state prisons and agencies, geriatric centers, nonprofit organizations, and public schools. Some of these internships can lead to employment upon graduation.

Our small classes and labs are taught by faculty who are experts in clinical, developmental, experimental, health, industrial/organizational, school, and social psychology. There are opportunities to co-publish and present research findings with them on:

  • Body image issues
  • Hypnosis and pain management
  • Workplace motivation
  • Family therapy
  • Forensic psychology
  • Sports psychology

You can participate in our Honors program and outside of class, attend our guest lecture series and join our Psychology Club.
