About this program

B.S. in Psychology

The College of Science and Humanities offers a 120-credit hour Bachelor of Science in Psychology Degree. This program is broadly conceived and includes both academic and experiential opportunities for students who may wish, upon graduation, to pursue a variety of opportunities in psychology.

The Bachelor's of Science in Psychology curriculum exposes students to foundational content that helps them develop an understanding of human behavior. In addition, Husson’s psychology degree program can prepare psychology majors for the Maine State Mental Health Rehabilitation Technician/Community certification (MHRT/C), bachelor's level entry positions common to most community mental health agencies, or for graduate school admission.

Students who choose to take courses required by the State of Maine to fulfill the MHRT/C may apply for this certificate upon graduation. This is a credential necessary for employment in entry level mental health positions at mental health agencies throughout the state of Maine. Such positions in the mental health field are typically referred to as "case management" or "community integration services" positions. These situations typically involve working as part of team providing case management and skills development to adults with mental health or co-occurring disorders (i.e., substance abuse). Additionally, individuals in these posts assist clients in recovery doing individual and group work by providing skills-based services (e.g., communication skills development, independent living skills training, health education, etc.). Entry level appointments also require employees to have a working knowledge of housing options, entitlement programs, and the ability to work as part of a treatment team with other professionals in various fields (e.g., psychologists, physicians, occupational therapists, etc.).

Students may also complete a psychology curriculum tailored to their own to pursue an individualized career path or attend graduate school. Depending on a student’s individual interests, a psychology degree can create a solid foundation for entering a competitive job or academic market. Students working toward a Bachelor's of Science in Psychology are highly encouraged to complete a minor.

Admission requirements

First-year international applicants must submit official copies of one test that assesses English competency. Husson University accepts the TOEFL (minimum score of 75) or IELTS (minimum score 6). Students who have been studying in a total English immersion environment for two or more years may replace the test of English competency with the SAT or ACT. In addition, after acceptance, students will complete an English and Math Placement Exam prior to class placement. Assessments help to ensure course placements that provide the strongest support for academic success.
