Degree Overview

Develop an understanding of human behavior and functioning with the online bachelor’s in psychology. Like most psychology programs in the country, our emphasis is on experimental methodology and statistical training.  However, unlike most large institutions, you’ll be encouraged to assist faculty members in research as an undergraduate. You’ll also be encouraged to develop independent projects and attend both regional and national conferences to present your own original research. Students who have been involved in our research labs have a five-time greater chance of getting into graduate school in psychology or a related field.

Earn your degree fully online, at one of the most affordable institutions in the state. The program features smaller class sizes and more personalized attention. Faculty members comprise experienced scholars and practitioners interested in a broad range of topics including emotion, cognition, human development, intergroup relations, prejudice, neuroscience and environmental psychology

  • Individuals seeking a strong foundation in psychology and a focus on experimental methodology and statistical training.
  • Individuals seeking opportunities to conduct research and present original research.
