CSU/LCCC CONSORTIUM AGREEMENT

Bachelor of Arts in Psychology

The study of psychology is concerned with explaining, predicting, and describing the thoughts, emotions, and actions of humans and animals. A major or minor in psychology provides an excellent background for occupations in such diverse fields as business, education, and the social services. A major provides the basis for graduate training leading to the pursuit of psychology as a profession in either the academic or applied areas.

Many students decide to major in psychology because the CSU program prepares them to work with and help others in many different ways, from providing one-on-one, in-depth assistance to those who are suffering to conducting research into the causes of mental illness to understanding what motivates people to respond to written or oral communication. Individuals, couples, families, schools, businesses, and communities all seek and use psychological services. Cleveland State University's Bachelor of Arts in Psychology makes it possible for students to pursue a four-year (baccalaureate) psychology major by a combination of courses taken at LCCC that are either LCCC courses taught by LCCC instructors or CSU courses taught by visiting CSU instructors.
