Graduate Icon

If you’re interested in majoring in psychological science as an undergrad, you’ll need to first be admitted to Ball State University. If you plan to pursue one of our master’s degrees, you’ll need to apply to both the Ball State University Graduate School and our department. Also, we offer scholarships and graduate assistantships to help cover the costs of your education.

What Can You Do with a Psychological Science Major?

As one of our students, you’ll develop your communication and interpersonal skills, analytical insights, flexibility and creativeness, and computer abilities—all of which are highly applicable to any profession.

Our graduates go on to develop careers in fields as wide ranging as business, social service and healthcare, government and the military, and education.
