Choosing an Undergraduate Psychology Degree Program

Palo Alto University offers two distinct undergraduate psychology programs to meet our students' interests and professional goals. Each program has flexible scheduling options and high-quality instruction to help build the foundation for a rewarding career path or graduate studies in psychology.

Advancing Your Education

Pursue your passion with one of our two undergraduate programs: Bachelor of Science in Business Psychology or Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Social Action. Business Psychology is a degree program for those seeking to understand the behavioral side of business. Pursue roles in marketing and communications, human resources, management, or related areas. If you want to prepare for graduate studies or enter the workforce in a social or community-based capacity for a nonprofit or government organization, consider our Psychology and Social Action Program.

Earning Your Degree at Your Own Pace

We offer flexible scheduling to help meet busy lifestyles. Our undergraduate programs include traditional day programs, online, and hybrid options. Whether you are returning to school to change careers or working while attending college, PAU understands the need for flexibility. Most transfer students who meet the credit requirements can complete either degree program in just two years.

Meeting Your Professional Goals

Expand your potential career path when you choose one of our undergraduate psychology programs. Use your master's degree to work towards licensure in counseling, a doctoral degree to conduct research or clinical care, or in a business or community action role in which you can use your bachelor's degree to help make a difference.

If you've always been interested in the interplay between psychology, social action, and business, Palo Alto University could be the place for you. Learn more about our admission and transfer requirements to take the next step towards a fulfilling academic journey.
