Studying the science of psychology provides a better understanding of human nature and of the behavior of oneself and others as individuals and as members of groups.
The Department of Psychology currently offers a Bachelor of Science degree in General Psychology as well as a concentration in Organizational leadership.
The goal of the Missouri Western psychology undergraduate program is to provide students with a foundation in the basic core methodologies and body of knowledge that constitute the science and to introduce the many applications of psychology. You will not learn to be a counselor, a researcher, a psychological test expert, or a specialist in any one area of psychology. You will, however, receive a broad education in psychology and the liberal arts that will prepare you for a lifetime of autonomous, continuous learning. You will be well prepared for on-the-job training or advanced study in psychology.
