SCHOOL OF PSYCHOLOGY

Earn a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology

 

Psychology is the study of human experience across the lifespan including individual (cognition, emotion, behavior) and family/community systems. The psychology program at University of the West emphasizes the dimensions of multicultural and crosscultural influence. Course offerings in psychology include introductory and advanced instruction in both Western and Eastern systems of psychological theory and practice.

The university takes pride in offering small teacher-student ratio, diversity, and individual attention in the classroom as the faculty nurtures all aspects of the therapist’s personhood, particularly intrapersonal awareness, interpersonal and multicultural knowledge, and the skills to turn this awareness and knowledge into helpful interactions with others.
