Bachelor of Science in Psychology

The undergraduate psychology program at Alabama State University offers students a broad selection of specialty courses, a rigorous core of required courses, opportunities for networking with other students, participating incommunity service activities, and assisting in research projects. We recognize that psychology majors have varied career aspirations, and our goal is to provide each of our students with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in his/her chosen career pathway. Our students go on to pursue careers in psychology, education, social work, military, business, counseling, developmental disabilities, and so much more. We urge you to explore our website to discover all that the psychology program has to offer and to see what our students are doing to prepare for their careers.
