It is possible to complete our Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees in Psychology completely online. This online experience maintains the same quality of coursework and instruction as available in our in-person courses. These courses have been developed by experienced faculty members in collaboration with an instructional designer. The instructors are the same instructors who teach in-person classes in the department, and students are afforded the same access to instructors and academic advising as in-person students, through virtual meetings and online office hours.
