Bachelor of Applied Science in Psychology
Occupational Safety and Health Concentration

The intent of the psychology program is to provide a comprehensive plan of study that will introduce students to many subfields of psychology and prepare them for careers in a number of human services careers as well as graduate and professional programs. Graduate degrees are required to pursue licensure as a psychologist, counselor, or social worker. Waldorf College psychology majors should be prepared to enter these degree programs upon graduation. Through graduate studies, students may choose to specialize in areas including clinical, experimental, developmental, social, cognitive, human factors, sports, industrial/organizational, health, and forensics.

Learners explore a variety of areas, including industrial hygiene and occupational, environmental, and health safety.
