¿Qué aprenderé?

The Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Lamar University lead to popular psychology careers in fields such as public health, hospitals and health care, assisted living, counseling, chaplaincy, medical consulting, human resources, social work, health and human services, substance abuse treatment and prevention, education, advocacy, leadership, and research.

Some of the careers in psychology require advanced study. An undergraduate degree in psychology establishes the foundation for you to continue your education though graduate study in counseling or marriage and family therapy, non-profit management, or through other graduate degrees in the arts, sciences, and humanities.

Why Study Psychology at Lamar?

As a student in the Lamar University Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, you will study how people individually and collectively develop, cope, and thrive in the modern world. You will study psychological theories, apply them to your own life, and consider ways that you can take what you learn to better the world through action.

Our curriculum covers a broad base of topics within the psychology field including lifespan development, abnormal behavior, positive psychology, stress and well-being, health psychology, and forgiveness. Our program focuses on whole-person development.

Career Paths

Many of the top fields of employment for these degrees are not closely aligned with psychology. Instead, these career options utilize the communication, interpersonal, and human behavior knowledge that you acquire during your undergraduate studies. Undergraduate psychology programs help you acquire a wide range of interpersonal skills, which can then be put to use in a different sales and marketing positions. Employers value skills such as the ability to speak well and communicate effectively. If you are interested in working in this field, take classes that will improve your understanding of people and human behavior. Courses in sociology, personality, and communications can be especially beneficial.

While many people with a bachelor's degree in psychology find work in other unrelated areas, some choose to work directly in the field of mental health and human services. A few potential job titles in this area include psychiatric technicians, mental health technicians, case managers, rehabilitation specialists and social work assistants. In most cases, these individuals work directly under the supervision and guidance of a licensed clinical psychologist or social worker.
