Undergraduate Degree Programs


The School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences offers five undergraduate degree programs that study various aspects of brain and behavior.


We offer five undergraduate degree programs, two of which may be combined with a teacher certification plan.  Students in any of our undergraduate programs may select the fast-track option, or choose to complete an honors thesis. Students also have the choice of selecting a minor in any of the five undergraduate programs and can seek out research and internship opportunities. Two of the programs, Psychology and Child Learning and Development, may be combined with a teacher certification  plan.  Meet with an academic advisor to create a degree plan and for assistance with questions about options available to our students.
