Philadelphia University is one of the few institutions in the area to offer a B.S. in Biopsychology. Our curriculum provides strong scientific coverage of the biological bases of behavior; students take biology, chemistry and anatomy and physiology courses in addition to a comprehensive psychology curriculum. Students also select a concentration option – pre-medical, animal behavior, or graduate school – that gives them flexibility in their studies and the ability to adapt their curriculum to their career goals and interests. Research experience figures prominently in the program, with students completing an independent senior research project.
Biopsychology students work closely with faculty to develop an avenue of career possibilities. With a solid research foundation; a wide range of internships in counseling, business, legal and educational settings; and affiliation agreements with Thomas Jefferson University and the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, PhilaU gives biopsychology majors the necessary tools to succeed in advanced degree programs and professional careers upon graduation.
