Psychology (B.A.)

Do you wonder why people think, feel, and behave the way they do? The psychology program at Marymount will immerse you in the study of topics such as:

  • language development
  • parent-child relationships
  • stereotyping
  • neurological disorders
  • psychopathology

If you’re intrigued by topics such as these, consider majoring in Psychology.

Our learner-centered classes emphasize skills, such as critical thinking, scientific reasoning, and oral/written communication, that are in high demand by employers and graduate programs. Through quality experiences both in and out of the classroom, the program prepares majors for a wide variety of career and graduate school paths in psychology. Students with a Psychology B.A. typically find employment in the areas of:

  • advertising/media relations
  • athletic training/coaching
  • career counseling/college student services
  • case management/social services
  • government/nonprofit/market research
