Program Description

Georgia State’s online psychology degree introduces you to the study of the mind and behavior. Our classes will have you applying the concepts you’re studying to clinical, industrial, community and other social contexts, while increasing your understanding of behavior and the formation of relationships. This program allows new students with the equivalent of two years of credits toward a psychology bachelor's degree to complete the final two years online.

The psychology degree can be taken as either a bachelor of arts or a bachelor of science. Both options will have you studying the theories and basic research methods in the industry and will make you a better communicator and listener. The B.S. option requires more STEM-related coursework in science and math and graduates tend to focus on the clinical applications of the degree in their jobs or graduate school attendance. The B.A. option allows you to dive into social sciences such as economics, political science or gerontology, among other topics.

Many students find that a bachelor’s degree in psychology is a good foundation for moving into graduate work in a number of fields.
