Which Degree Is For You?

Online and on-campus options for transfer students to complete their degree in two years.

Choosing the ideal degree program is determined by the student's interests and professional ambitions.

  • Students who seek a business career, where a knowledge of psychology will help them advance in management, HR, marketing, communication or other roles, will benefit from the business focus of the B.S. Business Psychology program.
  • Students who see themselves actively working to help individuals, improve social conditions, and help develop stronger communities or who plan to pursue graduate studies in psychology should choose the B.S. Psychology and Social Action program.

Whichever program you choose, the admission process, online or on-campus options, tuition, guaranteed classes,  and every other benefit of a PAU education are the same.

Both programs are also an excellent preparation for graduate school, including Master's degree studies leading to professional counseling licensure, Doctoral studies in clinical psychology or graduate studies in a business-related field.
