Study Human Behavior, Thinking, and Emotion in our Flexible, Innovative Environment
Gain insight into psychological theories and practices — and learn how to apply them in real-world professional settings with St. Catherine University. Our program is designed for busy adults who want to earn their bachelor's degree in psychology without sacrificing their work or family commitments.
Through core courses in the psychology major, you will acquire a foundation in psychological theories, research methods, and current issues within the field and learn how to apply them in real-world situations.
A fast-track "3+2" dual degree option is available for students who want to combine a bachelor's in psychology with a Master of Public Health degree.
When you graduate from the psychology program, you will be prepared to take the GRE and apply to graduate school in psychology. The psychology program will not prepare you to provide direct, one-on-one clinical care for individuals. Rather, you'll use this major as a launching pad for careers in which you'll design, deliver, and evaluate programs and services. This major can also prepare you for graduate studies in counseling, mental health, clinical psychology, or occupational therapy
We also offer various student support services, including career counseling, internship opportunities, and financial aid
