Bachelor of Science in Psychology
The Bachelor of Science in Psychology is a 42-course, 126-credit degree. This program is designed to offer small classes and balanced coursework. The curriculum provides a broad back- ground in the liberal arts and sciences, research skills, and the understanding of human behavior. Within the Psychology program, students will study how human behavior changes from infancy through old age. Students will learn how to critically evaluate research often reported in the popular media. Students will also be introduced to research techniques such as survey construction and systematic observation, which they will find useful in the workplace. Specific areas of human behavior such as behavior disorders, counseling techniques, and forensic psychology are examined through a choice of psychology electives.
Concentration in Early Childhood Education
The Early Childhood Education Concentration is an 8 course, 24 credit specialization that focuses on important issues for teachers working in private and pre-K child development centers. This non-licensure specialization builds upon the skills, experience, and coursework many students will have already received prior to enrolling in Endicott College. This concentration will give students writing, research and foundational skills, especially focused on language and literacy skills. Teachers will need to ensure that young children become “Kindergarten ready.” The Concentration in Early Childhood Education will be open to all students enrolled in our BA Program in Liberal Arts and our BS Program in Psychology. These concentration courses will replace corresponding open elective credit requirements.
