Psychology is a diverse field with both scientific and professional aspects. Whether you choose the BA or BS degree will be dependent upon your career goal. Both the BA and the BS degree prepare you for all areas (clinical, developmental, etc.) of graduate level study in psychology and similar employment opportunities. Which degree is best for you depends upon the graduate program to which you are applying. The BS degree program prepares you for graduate programs which require you to have completed more math and science undergraduate courses. The BS degree may also be of more interest to employers such as laboratories, pharmaceutical companies and human factor labs.
