Recommended resources by the Department of Psychology and Social Work faculty at Grove City College include:
The Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science degrees prepare students for graduate school or for work following their college career. Neither degree is better than the other. The decision about which degree to pursue should be based upon the appropriateness of the required courses for one’s interests and goals.
The B.S. program is well suited for students who desire a stronger natural science focus, such as students who are double majoring in biology. By default, psychology majors will be placed in the B.A. track unless they specifically tell the Office of the Registrar that they want the B.S. option. Please talk with your academic advisor about which option is best for you.
Students who have taken PSYC 101 at another college can usually transfer those credits to Grove City College and do not have to take Foundations of Psychological Science. However, if you want PSYC 101 to count toward Grove City College's Foundations General Education requirement, you must take PSYC 101 at Grove City College or transfer your PSYC 101 credits from the other institution and ALSO take PSYC 105: Perspectives on Psychology.
