Undergraduate Program

The undergraduate Psychology program at Lehigh offers students the opportunity to study the principal areas of scientific psychology. The program is designed to give students an introduction to contemporary theories that address fundamental questions about how humans think, feel, and act across the lifespan, individually and in groups, as well as how and why people differ from one another.

Psychology is a diverse field. The psychology program at Lehigh allow for both breadth and specialization. Students may choose to complete the degree requirements for either the B.A. or the B.S. in psychology (see BA vs. BS page)

Students interested in declaring a major in Psychology should see Christina Stauffer, Administrative Clerk in the Psychology Department, (Chandler-Ullmann, Room 217). New majors are paired with a faculty adviser who will oversee their major program for the balance of their undergraduate career. Students are encouraged to declare their major as early as possible in  their academic career so they can plan a program of study that best meets their individual needs.
