University Majors

University of California, Santa Barbara
Psychological and Brain Sciences B.S.

Psychological science is an empirically-based research science that serves as an important bridge between the natural sciences on the one hand and the social sciences and humanities on the other. This is reflected in the research interests of our faculty, which span from the behavior of social groups to the behavior of neurons in the brain. This program does not focus on or provide training for counseling or clinical psychology, although many of our courses are good preparation for graduate training in these areas. Students who complete the Psychological and Brain Sciences major enter a variety of careers and graduate programs including experimental psychology, neuroscience, social neuroscience, social work, applied psychology, education, business administration, and law. Many of these professional careers require training beyond the undergraduate level and students with such interests should discuss their plans with an advisor as early as possible. Transfer students are admitted to pre-major status until prerequisites are satisfied.
