The Psychology major provides students with a broad exposure to the field of psychology while encouraging the development of the Civic Arts that characterize the Tusculum College curriculum. The program strongly emphasizes the integration of classroom knowledge with real-life applications while also emphasizing the role of empiricism in psychology.
The Behavioral Health concentration is specifically developed for students interested in developing skills needed for entry-level positions in a variety of helping professions and behavioral health service agencies. The curriculum is offered on the cohort schedule; however, it is designed to be flexible so that students may join the cohort later in the course sequence if course prerequisites have been met. Once students have started the lock-step course sequence, transfer course credit is not accepted.
The concentration course work includes 50 semester hours, plus two prerequisite psychology courses, with students having the option to complete the prerequisite coursework and additional hours required for graduation via the College’s Gateway Program.
