Interdepartmental Programs to Produce Bachelor's Psychologists.
Lunneborg, Patricia W.; Kanda, Christine N.
This paper disputes the notion that an advanced degree is required for all work in the field of psychology and suggests that those with a bachelor's degree in the field are employed in many areas where they use their training, but are not called psychologists. Another effect has been that industry and government offer few jobs to psychology baccalaureates. The University of Washington now offers two undergraduate psychology programs: the traditional one that prepares a student for graduate work in the field, and a new program that requires 50 hours in psychology, but has no fixed curriculum. The main feature of the new program is its interdisciplinary approach that allows students to learn about areas in which they will apply their psychology background. This paper briefly discusses the program and presents the supplementary course work in ten other departments: architecture, art, business administration, communications, English, forestry, music, physical education, social work, and sociology.
