The Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree is designed for students who want to understand the scientific and research basis for the many diverse fields within psychology. Defined as the "scientific study of the mind and behavior" Rowan's respected and popular Psychology program follows the American Psychological Association (APA) guidelines for the undergraduate Psychology Major, which strives to make students "psychologically-literate citizens." Upon successful completion of the program, students will be prepared to enter a broad spectrum of fields including human services (caseworker, social worker), sales and marketing (customer service, human resources) and community activism (non-profits). Students may also choose to pursue a graduate program in a variety of disciplines and sub-disciplines in Psychology and related fields.
