The Psychology program offers a Pre-Student Affairs 3+2 option for students interested in a career in Student Affairs.  Undergraduate students work with their academic advisor to complete courses needed to fulfill the requirements for both a Bachelor of Science degree and the entrance requirements for the Master of Arts in Student Affairs program.  Careers in Student Affairs involve counseling-focused positions at colleges and universities, including mental health counseling as well as those in housing and residence life, career services, student activities, multicultural services, academic advising, etc.  It is a specialized program that prepares students for graduate study by providing a strong basis in the biopsychosocial processes of human functioning.  The first year of the Master of Arts in Student Affairs program meets the requirements for the fourth year of the Bachelor of Science degree.
