Psychology (BS)

In the BS degree program in psychology at ASU's Tempe campus, students explore leading-edge issues about the brain, mind and behavior from a scientific, psychological point of view emphasizing quantitative skills. Students work with faculty and other psychology majors in a collaborative, diverse environment of coursework, research and other engagement activities to explore fascinating questions as whether robots can explain how we field in baseball; what effects stress and emotions have on adolescent adjustment; how humans recognize and regulate emotions; how body image relates to eating disorders; how chronic stress affects the brain; how evolution shapes our choice of partner; and what the physical and psychological consequences of substance abuse might be in adolescents.

The Bachelor of Science in psychology degree option is ideal for students looking for a liberal arts focus with a more intensive math requirement while studying psychology.
