Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) College of Arts and Sciences’ Bachelor of Psychology degree program ranks as one of the best in the nation, according to online source, Study.com. 

TAMIU’s Bachelor of Psychology degree program ranks #33 among the 50 Best Bachelor’s Degrees in Psychology, according to Study.com. The ranking features information on Tuition, Acceptance Rate, Graduate Rate, Financial Aid Percentage, Placement Services, Career Services and Accepted Credits for each school.

The site also provides information about bachelor’s degrees in Psychology as well as an overview of the requirements, curriculum, concentrations and additional information on possible careers and other degrees.

Dr. José Carlos Lozano, TAMIU College of Arts and Sciences, department of Psychology and Communication chair and professor, said the ranking is a testament to faculty commitment to the program.

“We are very proud of the full-time faculty serving our Psychology majors. They are highly qualified, very research-oriented, and always willing to get involved in community work,” Dr. Lozano said, “Our program is one of the most successful on campus thanks to the enthusiasm, commitment, and passion of our students and faculty.”

A psychology bachelor’s degree is a foundational degree that explores various psychology-related topics such as human behavior, brain function, assessment, and treatment, the site explains.

“Psychology bachelor's degrees are either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Science (BS). Both degrees qualify students for the same careers, but a BA degree has more social sciences courses while a BS degree has more life science courses; both types of degrees are primarily research-focused. A bachelor's degree in psychology is the minimum requirement or first step to pursue many careers, such as counselors, psychologists, therapists, and researchers,” the site notes.
