University Majors

San Francisco State University
Psychology B.A.

The Bachelors of Arts in Psychology offers a foundation in the analysis and critical evaluation of psychological literature, the communication of psychological concepts and facts both orally and in writing, and the development of psychological research including design, data analysis, measurement, and basic computer operation. Our B.A. degree provides an excellent foundation for work in the community in many fields that involve human relations and behavior. In addition, the undergraduate degree is an excellent preparation for graduate school in all fields of psychology and other behavioral and social sciences as well as for graduate programs in business, law, medicine, and many other professional fields.

The undergraduate curriculum is built around a core set of courses in theory and methods and five broad areas of study: cognitive and physiological science; human development and individual difference; social and cultural dynamics; organizations, institutions, and communities; and statistics and methodology. Several themes of common interest extend across these special areas including an appreciation for cultural and human diversity; ethics and values; a sense of individual empowerment; historical antecedents; critical thinking; and the understanding of self and others.
