BA Psychology, offered by Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

The psychology program is offered through University College-Newark. Psychology is the multidimensional scientific study of behavior and thought processes. Psychology students learn the structure and function of the nervous system; basic processes such as sensation, perception, and cognition; and complex phenomena such as development, individual behavior, group dynamics, personality, and abnormal behavior. The psychology major provides students with a background for understanding behavior through exposure to theories and scientific research across a range of these subdisciplines. Students thus acquire the preparation necessary to pursue graduate training in clinical or research psychology or to enhance the pursuit of related professions such as education, social work, medicine, or criminal justice. Students with an Associate’s degree (AA or AS only) from any accredited community college are eligible to apply to the Psychology program. To learn more about the Psychology program, click here.
