Actuarial Science

Campus September 2017 USA Boston

The Actuarial Mathematics program offers a well-balanced curriculum in applied mathematics with advanced preparation for the actuarial profession. [+]

Actuarial Mathematics The Actuarial Mathematics program offers a well-balanced curriculum in applied mathematics with advanced preparation for the actuarial profession. It boasts a dedicated group of faculty experienced in passing actuarial exams offered by the professional societies and recognized by the insurance industry. Auburn University is accredited by the Society of Actuaries to offer courses to satisfy the Validation by Education Experience (VEE) requirements in Applied Statistical Methods, Corporate Finance, and Economics. What is an Actuary? Actuaries bring a complex future into focus by applying unique insight to risk and opportunity. Known for their comprehensive approach, actuaries enable smart, more confident decisions. Where do actuaries manage risk? At this time, the majority of actuaries work in careers that are associated with the insurance industry, though growing numbers work in other fields. They are heavily involved in insurance because that is society's most powerful answer for managing risk. We reduce our risk of financial loss by transferring it to an insurance company that accepts the risk for a price (which is the insurance premium). Actuaries play a key role in designing insurance plans, determining the premium, monitoring the profitability of insurance companies, and recommending corrective action when appropriate. Actuaries working in insurance companies also ensure that insurance companies have set aside enough funds to pay claims and provide advice on how to invest the insurance companies' assets. Actuaries work in all sectors of the economy, though they are more heavily represented in the financial services sector, including insurance companies, commercial banks, investment banks and retirement funds. They are employed by corporations as well as the state and federal government. Many work for consulting firms. Some are self-employed, enjoying financially rewarding careers that also come with the great flexibility of being one's own boss. In addition to the financial services market, actuaries are increasingly working in the broader energy, transportation, manufacturing and healthcare industries, helping identify, measure and manage risks and opportunities within complex, risk-bearing enterprises. Employers of Actuaries Insurance companies Consulting firms Government insurance departments Banks and investment firms Large corporations Public accounting firms Colleges and universities Needed Skills Mathematics Analytical and problem solving skills Interest in financial and business applications Computer proficiency Solid communications skills Actuarial Exams Actuaries in the U.S. and Canada achieve professional status by passing a set of examinations prescribed by the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS) or the Society of Actuaries (SOA). Many prospective actuaries begin taking exams while in college and Auburn University offers courses with syllabi that closely match those for exams P/1, FM/2, and MLC/3 as well as two seminars designed specifically to prepare students to take exams P/1 and FM/2. According to research conducted by the SOA in the past few years, the recognition of actuarial credentials was very high among employers in insurance, reinsurance and consulting markets. [-]

Architecture The B.A. in Architectural Studies is designed to serve as a platform or foundational degree for students who plan to specialize in architecture and other disciplines that focus on the design, planning and construction of the built environment. It exposes students to ideas and practices currently followed in all of the School’s design disciplines and it focuses on many of the business, communications and organizational skills that are not covered in the technical requirements of the graduate curricula. Students at KU who start in the B.A. in Architectural Studies, co-enroll in graduate professional degrees and take courses that count toward the B.A. and the graduate professional degree. All B.A. students take a core of classes in architecture, design and planning. The core involves a sequence of skill-based studios, survey courses within each of the School’s disciplines, and courses in architectural history and theory. This degree core is supplemented with classes that fulfill the Core Curriculum, additional courses that meet the requirements of any one of the Undergraduate Certificate Programs, and advanced professional enrichment courses that fulfill requirements in the graduate professional degrees. From the very beginning, each student works with an advisor to make sure that appropriate progress is being made both toward the completion of the B.A. degree and, if designated, the graduate professional degree. Some students may opt to complete the 124-credit B.A. without continuing and completing the additional year (or two) required to finish one of the professional degree paths. The four-year, 124-credit course of study that leads to a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Architectural Studies prepares students for graduate education in many other fields such as law, business, government, facility management, and public administration that are enhanced by a broad knowledge of architecture. It also prepares them for work in a number of fields related to architecture. Most of these fields of specialization extend beyond the traditional realms of formal architectural design, building technology and construction. Architectural specializations have emerged in space planning, acoustics, lighting, historic preservation, energy conservation, land use planning, urban design, computer application, environmental impact assessment, life safety regulation, and post-construction evaluation. New specializations continue to appear because of new social needs and improved technologies. B.A. Architectural Studies graduates have used different concentrations of professional enrichment courses to find employment in a broad range of fields in both the public and private sectors. Within the federal and state governments, B.A. graduates have gone to work in facility management, space planning, historic preservation consulting and other offices that deal with the public building stock. At the local and municipal level, they have found employment in economic development agencies, heritage and community centers, and similar public organizations that promote improvement, preservation or modification of the built environment. Some have also gone to work in not-for-profit and development agencies and private-public and federally-funded organizations that promote community economic growth and development involving extensive planning, survey work, housing analyses, community organization, and other “grass roots” tasks. Within the private sector, B.A. graduates have combined their training in architecture with course work in communications, project management and organizational behavior to land jobs in facility management, property management, building materials supply and sales, architectural services marketing, and historic preservation surveying, research and consulting. Students who complete the B.A. and later wish to become licensed architects may pursue a professionally accredited Master of Architecture degree. [-]

Geography GEOGRAPHY is the science dealing with the areal differentiation of the earth's surface, as shown in the character, arrangement, and interrelations over the world of such diverse elements as climate, soil, vegetation, population, land use, culture, industries, states, and of the unit areas formed by the complex of these individual elements. (noun). Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary. Geography is the study of the distribution of phenomena over the surface of the earth. The study of geography has three main disciplinary focuses: people, place and identity; earth, and environment; and Geographic Information Science (GIS). Although geography encompasses many fields, the basic goal of geography is to identify the characteristics of a place to determine how it functions (population, culture, resources, landforms, climate, etc...), and how it relates to, or compares with, other places. This may sound like a simple task, but be forewarned the world is full of complex patterns, processes, and relationships. Thus geographers are among the leaders in using GIS, Remote Sensing, qualitative and quantitative methods in our efforts to identify and explain "spatial patterns" around the world. Given the changing nature of our world, geography provides an assortment of skills and tools to help you understand your place in our complex, globalized, multicultural society and geography provides a knowledge base which will help you to take advantage of all our world has to offer. So, how do you know you want to be geographer? Are you curious about places? If so, geography channels this interest into a rigorous study of the makeup of places and what makes them tick. Do you like to study maps? The geographer's first inclination is to put information on a map in order to see how it looks spatially. Are you interested in foreign areas? Many geographers specialize in a particular part of the world such as Latin America, Europe, Asia, or Africa. Do you like to work outside? Many geographers obtain their basic data from field investigation in environments that range from wilderness areas to cities. Are you a problem solver? As scientists, geographers are naturally curious about how the world is arranged. They ask lots of questions about why things are located the way they are and then they try to answer those questions. If you answer yes to even one of these questions then geography just might be for you! If you are interested in learning more about geography please contact us or come by our offices on the campus of Auburn University. We look forward to sharing our experiences with you. Who knows, you may discover that you are a geographer too! Bachelor of Arts in Geography This curriculum in geography promotes geographic literacy as an indispensable element in any educational program. It focuses on spatial relationships and the view of the Earth as the home of humankind. Geography readies students for careers in public services, consulting companies, state or federal agencies, utilities and other professions, as well as for graduate studies in geography. [-]

Architectural Engineering Architectural engineering is the engineering discipline concerned with the planning, analysis, design, construction, and operation of engineered systems for commercial, industrial, institutional, and large residential facilities. Engineered systems include electric power, communications, and control; lighting and acoustics; heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC); fire and life safety; structural systems; and green buildings and sustainability. Architectural engineering is a challenging ABET-accredited four-year course of study that leads to a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering (BS ARCE). The BS ARCE program is administered by the School of Engineering in consultation with the School of Architecture, Design, and Planning. Undergraduate students in the ARCE program have full access to the resources in both schools including scholarships, courses, computer and instructional laboratories, shops, student organizations and activities, and libraries. Missouri residents in our BS ARCE program, via an annually-revisited agreement between the two states, are usually eligible for tuition-reduction reciprocity.The application form is available from the Dean's Office of the School of Engineering or the Architecture Department in the School of Architecture, Design, and Planning. ARCE students that have an interest in architecture as well as engineering can get both the professional ABET-accredited BS ARCE degree and NAAB-accredited Master of Architecture (M ARCH) degrees at KU in six years, which includes a required summer of study. This dual degree option is possible because of the architectural design, history, and building technology courses that ARCE students are required to take from the architecture faculty as well as the close relationship between engineering and architecture at KU. Architectural engineering is a rigorous degree program. Entering students should be prepared to have their studies and studio activities consume most of their time and energy. However, graduates find rewarding and fulfilling careers upon graduation. Professional Registration and Licensing Engineers are involved in projects that directly affect the health and safety of the public. Graduates are strongly encouraged to become registered Professional Engineers as soon as possible after graduation. This involves completing an ABET-accredited B.S. degree in civil or architectural engineering, passing the Fundamentals of Engineering and Professional Engineering examinations, and obtaining 4 years of satisfactory engineering experience. Students in both civil and architectural engineering must take the FE examination before graduation. Some architectural engineers also practice as architects after completing an NAAB-accredited professional undergraduate or graduate architecture degree program and becoming Registered Architects. Students with this interest should consider Track II and III master of architecture degree programs after completing their B.S. in architectural engineering. Professional Opportunities Architectural engineering focuses on building systems analysis and design, including structural, mechanical, energy, lighting, and electrical systems, and construction methods applied to buildings. Increasingly, architectural engineers are interested in specializations such as green buildings, acoustics, and fire protection. Architectural engineers center their attention on the performance, safety, cost-effectiveness, and construction methods of these systems. They typically work for engineering consulting firms, construction companies, or government agencies. [-]

Astronomy Undergraduate Program Astronomy is often called the oldest science -- in many ways, it is also one of the newest! Our majors learn the science of the physical study of stars and stellar systems in the observable universe, what might more properly be called astrophysics. Because astronomers really can't experiment on stars, experimentalists are called observers instead. They supply the observational details of positions, fluxes, and spectra to theoreticians, who model the evolution and development of objects ranging from comets to stars to entire galaxies. Scientists who study the surfaces of planets are more typically found in geology programs, while scientists who specialize in the study of upper atmospheres and magnetospheres of planets, and the regions between the planets, are generally housed in space physics groups. Bachelor of Science (BS) in Astronomy The Bachelor of Science (BS) degree is designed primarily for students as a pre-professional degree for those intending to continue on to a graduate program in Physics, Astronomy, or a related field. The emphasis is on providing the student with a strong, competitive foundation in the math and science required to move to the next level and contribute professionally to independent research and development within the field. Whether the degree ends with the achievement of a BA or BS or serves as a stepping stone to additional study, these programs offer an excellent undergraduate education, training some of the finest problem solvers and analysts of the future! All of our undergraduate BS majors and the majority of BA students are involved in research projects during their years here. Many earn summer scholarship support from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, through research grants to faculty supervising their projects, or through admission to one of the many summer REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) sponsored by the National Science Foundation. The majors have also competed successfully on a regular basis for summer internships at REU sites around the country. [-]

Biology The mission of the Department of Biological Sciences is to provide a fundamental, intellectual, framework for science in which each student in the major may develop an understanding of the structures, functions, and inter-relationships among diverse biological systems. A Biology degree is relevant to everyone. A solid foundation in biological principles is certainly of relevance to students interested in careers in some aspect of medicine, biologically relevant research, management of natural resources or teaching. But such a foundation empowers any citizen to confront issues of ever increasing complexity of medical care, environmental deterioration, bioethics, agricultural economics, public health or biotechnology. A major in Biological Sciences provides students with a broad education in the sciences and empowers students with knowledge critical to surviving life in the 21st century. The Department of Biological Sciences offers a focused program of courses for students seeking a Major in Biological Sciences, as well as courses for students needing to satisfy specific for other Majors including Nursing, Pharmacy and Public Health, and courses with broad impact for students seeking to satisfy a science requirement for other programs. Courses are taught by a faculty of some 40 professors with exceptional academic backgrounds and expertise ranging from molecular and cell biology to organismal and environmental biology, from bacteria to plants and animals, from neuroscience and behavior to developmental biology and cancer. See professors and their interests here. Courses are progressive in that introductory courses provide broad surveys of biological issues, and more advanced courses are increasingly focused and detailed. Although class sizes can be fairly large for introductory courses, they are often quite small for more advanced courses (8-20 students). Small class sizes, practical laboratory components of many courses, and undergraduate research offer many opportunities to students to develop close relationships with their professors. A major advantage of education at a large university is the opportunity students have to participate in research projects of professors. Professors of Biological Sciences maintain dual lives as educators and researchers; many research labs include undergraduate researchers. Typically, students become familiar with professors through their classes and through the descriptions of professor research on the department web site. Students can join laboratories as early as their freshman year. Research efforts can receive course credit (6 credits towards graduating, with 3 credits satisfying the major requirement). In many cases students receive financial support for research, especially during the summer, from either research grants of professors or from several competitive fellowship programs offered by the Department and University. Biology Major Students seeking a Biology Major take an assortment of general education courses, a 2-semester Introductory Biology course, 3 courses broadly focusing on Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Cell and Molecular Biology and Genetics, plus additional biology courses selected based on the student's specific interests and educational goals. Biology Majors also take courses in General and Organic Chemistry and Mathematics. Students are assisted and their progress monitored through a process of Advisement. [-]

Why Chemical Engineering? Why should you be interested in Chemical Engineering? Chemical Engineering is a broad field that brings together math, chemistry, biology and engineering to build the world around us, from the fuel in your car to the materials in your clothes. Many of the products of chemical engineering can be seen just by looking around the room you're in. Large-scale production of pharmaceuticals, development of new semiconductor technologies and alternative energy sources are just a few of the areas in which chemical engineers are making a difference. Chemical engineers are also at the forefront of efforts to move to a more environmentally sustainable economy. Chemical engineering is also an excellent major for those students wishing to pursue formal studies in medicine, pharmaceuticals engineering or even law. Here at KU, we offer first-hand experience in all aspects of chemical engineering. Students may choose a general option, or premedical, biomedical, petroleum, or environmental specializations. What's the future of the industry like? The future of the industry is very bright, thanks to increased worldwide demand for energy resources, medicines, and biomedical products. Chemical engineers are highly sought after to work in these industries as well as in research and development. This trend is likely to continue for many years. How much can I expect to make? With an undergraduate degree, the starting salary currently averages $65,782 in addition to an initial bonus. The average raise after the first year is typically 4.8%, with an industry average salary after 15 years of $84,000 Students graduating with MS degrees make about the same salaries starting out as those with BS degrees. Students holding an MS, however, have higher advancement potential. 90% of PhD graduates go on to industrial research and development, where they start at an average of $73,000. This initial salary typically grows to about $101,000 after 15 years of experience. Chemical Engineering Bachelor of Science Overview Chemical engineering has grown out of a combination of chemistry and engineering associated with industrial processes. Today, it possesses a body of knowledge used in the synthesis, design testing, scale-up, operation, control, and optimization of processes that change the physical state or composition of materials. Chemical engineers have played central roles in the industrial development of materials that have had major social influence, such as the production of fuels and lubricants, fertilizer, synthetic fibers, and plastics. They will be centrally involved in reducing the polluting effects of certain byproducts and cleaning up unwanted residues from previous processes. The first part of the program offers courses on the fundamental principles underlying the conversion of raw materials into a desired product by chemical and physical processes. Development of the concepts of engineering design begins with the application of fundamental principles to solve engineering problems in these courses and culminates in a series of senior-level design courses that require comprehensive integration of technical knowledge as well as consideration of economic, environmental, safety, and societal concerns. This experience is essential in preparing graduates for entry-level positions. Educational Objective The objective of the program is to prepare graduates for professional practice in industry, government, or post-undergraduate training in chemical engineering, medicine, and other related disciplines. Professional Opportunities Chemical engineers are concerned with the chemical processes that turn raw materials into valuable products. They serve industrial and other activities where processes occur in which materials undergo a chemical or physical change. Chemical engineers build a bridge between science and manufacturing, applying the principles of chemistry, biology and engineering to solve problems involving the production or use of chemicals. Chemical engineers typically work for manufacturing companies, environmental companies, health care and pharmaceuticals, petroleum industry, biotechnology, or consulting firms. [-]

About Civil Engineering Civil Engineering is the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines. As the name implies, civil engineers serve people, and thus they have been called "the engineers and architects of our constructed world." Civil engineers conceive, plan, design, construct, operate and maintain the facilities and systems that serve the basic needs of our society. This infrastructure includes buildings, bridges, water tanks, transmission lines, pipelines, highways, railroads, airports, harbors, water and wastewater collection/treatment/ distribution systems, dams and power plants. More than any profession, civil engineers can have a positive effect on the protection of our environment. As an example of the diversity of the skills utilized in civil engineering, the area of construction draws heavily from the basic engineering sciences; fundamental economic business and management principles; computer applications; and just plain common sense and practicality. On the other hand, the area of structural analysis and design is as sophisticated in mathematical and computer modeling as any area in engineering. In fact, the most flexible and powerful numerical modeling/analysis method available to engineers today—the finite element method—was pioneered by civil engineers. Because civil engineers are involved in almost every area that is fundamental to basic human needs, the job market for graduates is strong and stable. Civil engineers are employed in urban and rural areas; they may work for local, state and federal governments, for the smallest consulting firm, or for a large international conglomerate. Civil engineering graduates occupy leadership positions in industry and government throughout the United States and are in wide demand because of the excellent education that they receive at Auburn. The department has one of the strongest scholarship programs available at Auburn for qualified students, which can be a real help in offsetting the cost of a college education. [-]

Minors Many students enjoy completing a minor, either for the sake of complementing their major and professional aspirations, or simply for fulfillment. As your personal growth potential is so great while in college, this can be an opportune time to increase the number of tools in your tool chest as much as possible. Computer Science Minor A Minor in Computer Science offered by the Department of Computer Science is designed for students who desire to enhance their skills with a course of study in the development and application of Information Systems. Engineering Management Minor The Minor in Engineering Management is designed for students completing an engineering degree who desire an understanding of management skills. Sustainability Minor A Minor in Sustainability is suggested for students who desire an understanding of sustainability or those who anticipate working for trans-national or development organizations. The interdisciplinary Minor in Sustainability is open to students of all majors. Technology Minor A Minor in Technology is designed to complement a non-engineering degree by adding some exposure to the elements to technology that are shaping the 21st Century. This minor is open to non-engineering students only. Cooperative Education Program Cooperative Education employment enhances a technical degree and stimulates the learning process by relating theory to practice. When students apply what they have learned in the classroom to a working situation, they learn by doing, which increases student motivation. What is Cooperative Education? Cooperative education (Co-op) is a term used in engineering circles to mean, "paid internship." Our students accept these positions all across the globe in all types of technical capacities. It is an integral part of the engineering and computer science curriculum at our university. Engineering students are required to complete seven months of this paid professional practice before graduation. The program is optional for: Bioengineering majors who are following the biomedical path. International students by virtue of their de facto education abroad experiential education. The occasional student who already has equivalent experience. Computer Science majors, but most take advantage of the program anyhow. Students Benefits Engineering and computer science students receive many benefits from the Co-op Program, including: The faculty like this program, most for its effect in helping students relate theory to practice. This learning-by-doing increases comprehension and retention. Students appreciate the income, which averages $2500 - $3000 per month, helping to defray their education costs upon returning to campus. Students talk much more about how much it helps them to secure permanent employment upon graduation. Nearly every graduating senior reports either, "Yes," or "Maybe" when asked if they could secure an offer of permanent employment with their former co-op employer. We would guess that nearly all would say, "Yes," except that many are planning to pursue their masters first and thus do not know yet. Another major benefit is helping students choose and confirm their major and concentration. Engineering and computer science are such stealth professions that most students going to college do not really know very much about it. Co-op helps them to learn firsthand what their chosen major is, how well they do in it, and how much they like it. Afterwards, they can change their major if they wish, possibly not losing very much time towards their graduation. Other notable benefits include: Exposure to cutting-edge developments within their majors. Increased professional, people, communication, ethical and critical thinking skills. Greater motivation to persevere through their remaining upper-division courses. The Co-op Program also just helps to ease the transition from student to working professional. [-]

Formal study in an accredited engineering program is the principal means of becoming licensed to practice engineering in the USA. During the junior or senior year, a student should take the national Fundamentals of Engineering examination. This is a demanding examination; but engineers never know whether or not they will need to be professionally registered later in their careers. So, it is best to be prepared for this potential career direction by taking the FE exam. Since the FE examination comprehensively covers the courses taken, the FE becomes more challenging as you get further away from having the material fresh in your mind. After a minimum of four years of engineering practice which is satisfactory to the Board of Professional Engineers in the State in which you are working, an engineer may take an extensive examination to become a registered professional engineer. Licensing regulations vary among states, so it will important for you to ascertain what the regulations are in the state in which you are employed. More information about the FE exam can be found at the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying site; and information regarding State of Kansas registration. [-]

BA in International Studies Drawing students from all over the world, our university's top-ranked SIS has the largest faculty and most comprehensive curriculum of any school of international affairs in the United States. With our D.C. location and a multidisciplinary approach that marries theory and practice, you won't find a better place to build your global practice of service. Offered by the School of International Service, the BA in International Studies prepares students for internationally-focused careers in government, non-profits, and the private sectors. The curriculum is firmly rooted in the liberal arts and sciences, inherently interdisciplinary, and aimed at helping students to think critically and clearly about the most pressing global challenges. It also affords an opportunity for students to find their truest vocations, to discover their passions, and to become active and engaged citizens in a complex global world that defies simple explanations or solutions. SIS faculty and courses help students acquire critical intellectual dispositions and expanded moral imaginations-enabling them to think critically, creatively, and independently about important international issues-that will help them shape the global future. The seven learning outcomes for the BA in International Studies are: Demonstrate critical thinking as evidenced through both written work and oral presentation. Interpret issues from multiple cultural and philosophical perspectives. Demonstrate an understanding of the role of values, ethics, and justice in international affairs. Understand and apply theories and models drawn from appropriate disciplines such as political science, history, and economics to international affairs. Display in-depth knowledge of one or more global or regional challenges. Demonstrate competency in articulating a research question and designing and executing a research project. Demonstrate at least four-semester proficiency in a foreign language. SIS believes that the best way to prepare students for global citizenship is to give them opportunities to encounter both the breadth and the depth of international studies. The curriculum stretches students' horizons even as it allows individual students to customize their path through SIS so as to focus on the issues and topics that most attract their attention. A central feature of students' intellectual development in SIS involves original student research, which is thoroughly integrated into the entire academic program of study, including two specifically designated research methodology courses. The SIS commitment to undergraduate research helps students develop the critical capacity to question partisan sound bites and to maintain a healthy skepticism about simplistic knowledge claims. The entire curriculum reflects a concerted effort to help students learn to read closely, write cogently, and think critically, thus equipping them with the concepts, skills, and experiences appropriate for internationally-focused careers and vocations. The sequencing of the BA in International Studies is designed to give students a firm grounding in the breadth of the international studies field as well as solid research skills before they further develop their own research and substantive interests. The first year experience includes foundational SIS courses such as World Politics, Cross-Cultural Communication, and a First Year Seminar, together with SIS Mentorship, as a way of making sure that students are well-prepared to take advantage of all of the opportunities afforded them by SIS, American University, and the city of Washington, DC. The second year experience features the core research design and methodology sequence, together with gateway courses in the key thematic areas in which students choose to concentrate their coursework during their third year. Students at SIS also focus in depth on a particular region of the world. Lastly, a Senior Capstone class in the final year of a student's course of study allows for the integration of various aspects of the undergraduate educational experience, and enables the creation of a summative project. Admission to the Program Candidates for admission to the school must present evidence of excellent personal and academic qualifications. To be considered for freshman admission, an applicant should have earned at least a B average in secondary school. Cultural factors are considered in evaluating transcript and examination results. Other factors taken into account are leadership qualities, character, and personal interest. Students from other regionally-accredited collegiate institutions, and students in other programs at American University who have completed the freshman year, should maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 (on a 4.00 scale) to be considered for transfer to the school. For students who do not enter American University as International Studies majors, successful completion of SISU-105 World Politics FA3 (3) is required before the declaration of major. 120 credit hours with a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or better Completion of college writing requirement Completion of university mathematics requirement General Education Requirements A total of ten courses, consisting of two courses from each of the five foundational areas At least one course from Area Five: The Natural and Mathematical Sciences must include a laboratory science component No more than two courses may be taken in the same discipline Major Requirements 57 credit hours plus 3 credit hours in foreign language coursework at the Intermediate II level or higher, with grades of C or better.

Psychology Students interested in an education that emphasizes an understanding of human behavior should consider a major in psychology. Psychology as a major/minor can lead to a broad range of career possibilities. An education that focuses on behavior principles is valuable for anyone whose future involves interacting with others. Psychologists pursue careers in such areas as clinical services, health services, business, industry, testing, education, and behavioral research. There are plenty of career opportunities for students with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, particularly in the areas of social work, healthcare, business, and human resources. Career opportunities in some specializations may require a master’s degree, while career opportunities in others require a doctorate. Therefore, students should take time to examine their own interests, values, and goals in addition to job requirements and career options in their area of interest before embarking on an educational journey in psychology. The Department of Psychology offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts with a Major in Psychology. A student has the option of completing a General or Applied Psychology concentration. Students may graduate with departmental distinction in either program. Both concentrations require students to take an introductory course in psychology, as well as courses in research methods and statistics. The General Psychology concentration is appropriate for students who want to emphasize psychology within the context of a general liberal arts education. This concentration provides students with a strong base of knowledge for understanding the theories and scientific method of psychology. Many students choose this concentration when they are considering continuing their education beyond the bachelor’s level, but students go to graduate school from either concentration. The Applied Psychology concentration is designed to give a student not only a strong base in the core curriculum of psychology, but also an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the field.
