The Bachelor of Arts Degree
The psychology major provides students with a broad education, while also allowing some specialization. The program exposes students to the scientific study of behavior and encourages an increased understanding of the behavior of humans and animals. Students who wish to declare psychology as a major after enrolling in the University should consult with the department's academic counselor for application procedures and criteria.
The Bachelor of Science Degree
The Neuroscience and Behavior major offers a program of study in disciplines important to understanding brain function. This is an intercollege major that brings together topics in neurobiology (anatomy, physiology, neurochemistry, genetics) with elements of psychology and cognitive science. The program provides strong preparation for entry into graduate programs in neuroscience, behavior, pharmacology, and medicine. The Psychology and Biological Sciences departments administer the program jointly. Interested students who are already enrolled at UNH should consult the Psychology Department coordinator prior to declaring this major. Incoming students may declare this major at the time of admission to the University.
