Most students who major in psychology will work toward either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree. The major requirements for these degree programs are the same. The only difference is the general education degree requirements, which are set by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. For example, the BA degree requires 16 hours of a foreign language; the BGS degree requires 9 hours of upper division course work in a field outside the student's major. A few students may be interested in the Bachelor of Science (BS) in Behavioral Neuroscience. The BS in Behavioral Neuroscience degree requires a heavier emphasis in mathematics, natural science, and computer science.
