The UMSL Bachelor of Arts in Psychology program at St. Charles Community College provides the foundation for further training in psychology at the graduate level, the background necessary for graduate training in other fields such as the health professions, social work or counseling, or the liberal arts background necessary for entry level positions in many fields such as business, communication, and human services and mental health positions. To function specifically as a psychologist, a graduate degree is required.

The BA in Psychology degree completion program requires at least 34, but no more than 50, hours of courses taught by or cross-listed with the Department of Psychological Sciences. In addition, students must complete four courses numbered 3000 or higher and candidates are required to satisfactorily complete 13 credit hours in one foreign language.
