Maximum career flexibility
The scientific study of the human mind and its functions is fascinating, and the OSU Psychology online degree program gives students the flexibility to pursue a wide range of career goals based on their interest in the subject. A bachelor's degree in psychology prepares graduates for a wide range of career opportunities in fields such as:
- human and social service
- market research
- law enforcement
For many of our students, an undergraduate degree prepares them for continued graduate work in psychology or in other complementary fields such as medicine, law, or computer science.
Passion for blending science and human behavior
The field of psychology is about more than simply analyzing and reporting human behavior. First and foremost, students interested in a degree or career in psychology should possess the desire to understand the scientific mechanisms that underlie and influence thought processes and human behavior. In their work, psychologists apply information, data, and statistics derived from scientific knowledge and methodology to understand not simply why humans behave, think, or feel within an area of their expertise, but also how they behave, think, or feel these ways.
Oregon State's psychology online degree program provides students the opportunity to gain critical experience in statistics and experimental design.
You will select from a wide variety of courses that provide rigorous teaching in:
- research methods
- problem solving
- quantitative analysis
where you will learn how to collect, analyze, and interpret data.
