Psychology is among the top departments in undergraduate teaching at the UW. The Department offers both Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees, as well as a range of general education courses. The B.S. program—which prepares students for doctoral programs in psychology and careers in teaching, research, or clinical practice—emphasizes laboratory research and statistics. The B.A. program provides a more general background in psychology and prepares students for a wide range of graduate studies and a diversity of career pathways. Our courses are also popular with non-majors. In 2012-2013, 3,000 students were enrolled in Psychology 101 (Introduction to Psychology), making it the most popular course on campus.

Degrees offered: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and PhD.
