Why study Psychology online through OSU?

The Department of Psychology’s undergraduate program offers excellent training in 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 skills ranging from communication and problem-solving to research, data analysis and 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.

All you need is the necessary discipline and access to computer capabilities. All instructors who teach online learning courses are the same quality faculty who teach on-campus courses.
