Dear Breonna,

As far as I know it doesn't make any difference at all whether your psychology degree is a B.A. or B.S. Often a university will award only one or the other so you probably won't have a choice except by what university you choose to attend. If you want to be a clinical psychologist you will have to go to graduate school and obtain either a masters or Ph.D. Again I doubt that graduate programs will care whether you have a B.A. or B.S.

I hope this information is helpful. I wish you the best in pursuing your career goals.
