The Psychology program combines general liberal arts courses with specific psychology courses.
A major in psychology may be appropriate for the liberal arts student who wishes to pursue a career involving extensive interaction and requiring solutions to social- and psychological-related problems. The combination of writing skills, quantitative skills, critical and creative thinking skills and people skills that develops from training in psychology transfers to many other careers, including law, business, government, education and management.
Students are afforded the opportunity through their course work to select six different tracks for specialization in a specific area of the psychology world. Those tracks are general psychology, developmental psychology, forensic psychology, mental health worker, or research. Mount Ida College also offers a bachelor degree completion program in Psychology for students that transfer to the College.
Professional careers in psychology generally require some post-baccalaureate education. A bachelor degree in psychology from Mount Ida lays the groundwork for pursuing post-graduate studies, preparing you for careers in clinical and counseling services, research and teaching at the collegiate level.
