A year in development, Maria College is pleased to announce the launch of a new Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Highly flexible to meet the needs of today’s students, the innovative curriculum allows students to follow their interests within the major and add an additional concentration from areas ranging from business to gerontology. The goal of the psychology degree is to enable the student to become work-ready upon graduation and at the same time develop the critical thinking skills needed for graduate study. This degree program was approved by the NY Board of Regents on September 17, and is one of a number of new majors under development at the college. Applications are now available for the first year class that will begin in August, 2014.
