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.
Criminal Justice Concentration
Waldorf’s Criminal Justice concentration provides the opportunity to explore the three primary areas of the criminal justice system: law enforcement, courts and corrections. Complementing the bachelor’s degree in Psychology, students have the opportunity to study the criminal mind, as well as explore other aspects of human thought and behavior within the Criminal Justice field.
Estimated time of completion of this program is 4 years for full-time students.
