    General Education Requirements

    Psychology is the study of behavior and mental processes. Most psychologists have master's or doctorate degrees. Some of the various areas in psychology include clinical, developmental, experimental, physiological, and social. Individuals with a bachelor's degree may find jobs assisting psychologists, mental health, and human services professionals. They may also work in vocational rehabilitation offices and correctional programs or as research assistants. Other positions may be in areas that require extensive scientific knowledge and understanding of human behavior patterns in a variety of social settings.

    The curriculum outlined below is based on most common baccalaureate program requirements.  Students may earn an Associate's degree in Liberal Arts at WSC, but must transfer to a baccalaureate campus to complete a Bachelor's degree in Psychology.
