The adult degree-completion program in psychology is a fast-paced, year-round program that enables adults who work full time to earn an undergraduate degree. Our curriculum challenges you to combine your prior learning, both formal and informal, with theory, concepts and history. The course structure includes working in teams to apply learning to hypothetical and real-world challenges.
In the program, you will take a wide variety of courses in the areas of human behavior, the learning process, personality development, motivation and the cultural environment. You’ll have the opportunity to conduct original research in one-on-one and small group settings with expert faculty who specialize in a breadth of topics related to psychology.
Most classes meet in eight-week modules, allowing for flexibility in making progress toward your educational goals while managing work and family commitments. Transfer credit from another institution is welcomed.
