What Sets Our Bachelors of Psychology Programs Apart

The Bachelor of Science in Business Psychology is a program that combines strategic business practices with the study of psychology and social sciences. Students will develop a keen understanding of human behavior, motivation, and group processes, and learn how to apply that knowledge in a professional setting. Graduates will prepare for careers in sales and marketing, human resources, and management.

Our Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Social Action is ideal for students with a passion for community advocacy and outreach. The curriculum includes classes in psychology, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, and economics, and students complete a nine-month internship to gain real-world experiences. Graduates can find roles at nonprofits and community agencies or prepare for graduate programs in psychology.
