Psychology Degree - Bachelor of Arts
Psychology majors learn about human behavior from a variety of theoretical and applied orientations-both traditional and contemporary. The major is designed for you if you plan on pursuing graduate school, or if you plan to enter a career in psychology or the human services following your bachelor's degree work. Emphasis is placed on developing the ability to understand and apply research design and to evaluate psychological concepts and applications. You will conduct your own empirical or scholarly research in preparation for graduate study, and as a means to demonstrate good evidence-based practice skills. You also may choose to work in internship settings as a way to learn more about applications of psychology in human service agencies or other settings. As a psychology major or minor, you are encouraged to seek advising on all aspects of your future career from the psychology faculty.
Many of you will present your research at conferences sponsored by the Nebraska Psychological Society, the Nebraska Psychological Association, and regional organizations. These conferences provide opportunities for you to not only present their work, but to interact and network with students and faculty from other colleges and universities in Nebraska and nearby states.
Bellevue University psychology majors have also had their research published in the Journal of Psychological Inquiry, one of only three journals in the United States dedicated to undergraduate research.
