Bachelor of Science in Psychological Sciences

Who Majors in Psychological Sciences?

Approximately 300 College of Humanities and Natural Sciences students have decided that a Bachelor of Science in Psychological Sciences offers them the scientific preparation that they want. Based on the information about our graduates in the past 10 years, approximately one-third of these students will continue on to earn a graduate degree in some area of psychology (clinical, counseling, industrial, experimental, or some other area).  In addition, another one-third of students will seek an advanced graduate or professional degree in a related area (law, medicine, dentistry, optometry, social work, business, or other fields). Our graduates have traditionally done well in their graduate and professional school careers. There are endless careers and jobs for Psychology majors who have a Bachelor of Science degree from Loyola, a solid foundation in psychology, a strong liberal arts background and marketable skills.
