Psychology BA

Psychology, B.A.

Earn a bachelor’s in Psychology from St. Francis College and learn from leading professionals, access on-the-ground training in supervised internships, and join an active community of industry professionals, both inside and outside of the classroom.

Psychology students at SFC will graduate prepared for a broad range of careers that include mental health, social service, experimental research, business, law, and other specializations. Additionally, the program provides a solid foundation for future graduate studies in areas such as clinical, forensic, developmental, school, counseling, and experimental and industrial-organizational psychology. When combined with a broad program of other courses, it can also prepare students for future careers in a variety of fields from experimental research to business and law.

Students to wish to pursue graduate studies may opt into the dual degree program, where qualified students earn both a B.A. and M.A. in just five years. Underlying the focused, outcomes-driven curriculum is SFC’s robust General Education Program, which is the cornerstone of SFC and affirms its mission to graduate educated, well-rounded individuals who enter the workforce and work to change and culturally diversify the world.


St. Francis College students receive the enhanced Terrier 360 system of wrap-around support from day one to after graduation. Within the robust support, students gain in-depth insight and guidance to academic, internship, and career path options via the Center for Student Success, Center for Career Exploration, and Center for Learning and Leadership.

Psychology majors also have access to three cutting-edge centers devoted to the field of Psychology: The Institute for International & Cross-Cultural Psychology (IICCP), Self-Awareness and Bonding Lab (SABL), and The Center for the Study of Pinniped Ecology and Cognition (C-SPEC).


Qualified students seeking an additional academic challenge can participate in the St. Francis Honors Program, where students participate in a series of small, intensive seminars, trips, and other activities that lead towards a senior thesis.

The College is also home to 15 national honor societies and its own Duns Scotus Honors Society which recognizes students for their academic and community achievements.
