The Bachelor of Science in Psychology is consistently among the most popular degrees in the College of Liberal Arts at Southeast Missouri State University. Indeed, it is among the most sought after degrees in the University. The overall intent of the degree is to provide a common set of learning experiences for students wishing to pursue careers in such fields as public affairs and social services, education, business and management, sales, health professions, biological sciences and computing. The Bachelor of Science degree is also an excellent preparation for graduate work leading to careers in fields such as health psychology, forensic psychology, criminal justice, physical therapy, school psychology, law, medicine and many others. A new M.A. program in Industrial/Organizational Psychology, beginning in fall of 2017, offers an opportunity to succeed in a growing area of psychology.

Check us out. You will see why a recent Southeast graduate said, "This is a wonderful place to get an education, and I highly recommend it to anyone considering a degree in Psychology."

I look forward to seeing you!

Dr. Melissa Odegard-Koester, Interim Chair
