understanding human behavior and the uses of scientifically rigorous methods. A degree
in psychology also serves as your foundation for various careers and helps you acquire

computer literacy. Our degree allows you to complete a second major or a minor often
without additional hours. Graduates enjoy successful careers in a variety of fields
such as mental healthcare, education, behavioral research, medicine, law, forensic
science and marketing/sales.
The College of Arts and Sciences offers comprehensive online degrees to fit your busy
schedule. Using the latest technologies, we put psychology courses within reach for
students who are not able to attend classes on campus or commit to full-time, face-to-face
enrollment due to the time constraints of working full-time and raising a family.

is completed entirely online. All you need is the necessary discipline and access
