Bachelor of Science in Psychological Sciences

Who Majors in Psychological Sciences?

Psychological Sciences is the largest major at Loyola University because our students know that a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology offers them the liberal arts and science preparation that can serve them well in the future.

Collaborations between faculty and students produces award winning research projects and prepares students for their future careers. Based on information about our graduates in the past ten years, about one-third of our students continue to a graduate degree program in some area of psychology (clinical, counseling, industrial, experimental, or some other area). Another one-third of them seek an advanced graduate or professional degree in a related area (law, social work, business, medicine, dentistry, or other fields). Whatever your career goals in psychology, our program can prepare you for them. Our graduates have traditionally done well in their graduate and professional careers with recent students attending Columbia University, DePaul University, George Washington University, Loyola Law School, New York University, Rutgers, and Tulane Medical School. Visit our page, Psychology Alumni Updates, for additional information about our alumni. Yes, there are jobs out there for graduates who have a degree in Psychology from Loyola!
