Program Details

The Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Eastern Oregon University provides specialized study within the context of a broad liberal arts education. The psychology program promotes an understanding of human behavior and how this shapes societies, provides an understanding of the foundations of psychology as a scientific discipline, integrates the influence of psychology on contemporary thought, and promotes research skills. This degree prepares students for entry into graduate and professional schools in the field and prepares students for entry-level positions in fields such as social work, community organization, human resources, and nonprofit work.

Students will develop a basic understanding of the core branches of psychology, which include learning, development, cognitive, sensation and perception, emotion, motivation, biological bases of behavior, abnormal behavior, and evolution of behavior. Students will cultivate the ability to read and discuss primary research in psychology, to design and carry out a research project. They will also develop skills in scientific writing, presentation of research, and the ability to understand and evaluate research models and statistics. 

This program is designed with contemporary workplace skill development in mind, and will allow graduates to apply their research and behavioral analysis to their careers. Understanding of human behavior will have a natural effect on the cultivation of interpersonal awareness and critical thinking skills that encourage evaluation of individuals in their contexts.
