The School of Psychology offers a four-year B.A. in Psychology with optional career tracks in mental health, clinical social work, forensic psychology, consumer psychology and organizational behavior/human resources. The school also offers five-year accelerated B.A./M.A. programs in general/theoretical psychology and forensic psychology and a combined B.A. in Psychology (clinical social work track) and Masters in Social Work (in conjunction with New York Universitys School of Social Work). All programs offer a wide range of courses at both introductory and advanced levels in areas such as developmental, social, abnormal, personality, and experimental psychology, and in special topic areas such as techniques of psychotherapy, drugs and behavior, health psychology, sport psychology, psychology and the law, and current issues in psychology. The forensic psychology track affords students an introduction to the dynamic fields of criminal justice and forensic psychology, integration of forensic science disciplines with criminal investigations, and training in psychological theory, research methods, and the application of psychological principles to specific areas of the legal system. At the same time, students enrolled in this track may receive hands-on experience at a practicum site of their choice to help facilitate the integration of theory and practice, and will come away with an interdisciplinary background appropriate for careers in psychology, social work, law enforcement, or other criminal justice professions.
