Concordia to offer Bachelor of Arts in psychology

Beginning January 2014 at its main campus

Concordia University Texas will begin offering a new Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology starting in January 2014.

The new Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology will be available to all students in a traditional classroom setting at the Concordia University Texas main campus.

“Introducing the psychology degree demonstrates that Concordia professors and staff are listening to our students and their educational wants and needs,” Alan Runge, Provost for Concordia University Texas, said.

Bachelor of Arts in Psychology

The Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology will take place in a traditional classroom setting that will focus on providing a Christian environment throughout the program. Students will learn from and work alongside faculty to explore the effective, cognitive and behavioral aspects of mental, physical and spiritual well-being. Students will learn about theoretical perspectives, scientific methods and procedures, and scientific writing in the field of psychology.

Students will have the opportunity to select one of two tracks with this degree—professional or academic. The professional track is designed for students who plan to pursue entry-level jobs or a terminal master’s degree (e.g., counseling). The Academic track is designed for students who intend to pursue doctoral-level study or entry-level research jobs.

This program is designed for completion in four years, and it will require students to complete 32 to 33 hours of mandated course work, with at least 18 upper-level hours. A writing portfolio must be completed in order to graduate.

Anyone interested in learning more about the psychology major or any of the university’s undergraduate programs is invited to attend the Winter Preview event at main campus on December 6.  Registration information is available at http://discover.concordia.edu/undergraduate-degrees/meet-us-admissions-counselors/visit/campus-previews/.
