Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science program at Utah State University (USU) was created for students with an interest in psychology, but can also serve as a platform for those seeking careers in areas of business, education, law, medicine, or other areas. Students seeking a degree in psychology generally want to develop strong analytical skills and have an interest in mental conditions and the human mind.

The Psychology Department at USU has a diverse faculty, bringing knowledge from domestic and international experiences. In this online program, with the help of those professors, students become involved in research, discovery, and skill-building knowledge.

Students have the possibility of enrolling into the Department of Psychology as pre-psychology majors before gaining full admittance. They will remain under this status until they meet certain requirements and have completed an application to the department demonstrating successful completion of those requirements. The department gives students opportunities to become involved in organizations that enhance job viability and personal fulfillment, including the Student Advocates of Behavioral Science, the Psychology Club, and the International Honor Society of Psychology.

Students will receive instruction in the development of humans, from infancy and childhood, to adolescence, to adulthood, and into old age. There is focus on analyzing behavior, social psychology, and the impact of gender and culture. Students may also participate in apprenticeships to gain practical real-world experience they can bring to the job market.
