APPLIED PSYCHOLOGISTS SOLVE PROBLEMS WITHIN HUMAN BEHAVIOR SUCH AS HEALTH OR WORKPLACE ISSUES.

Wesleyan’s 100% online applied psychology major is designed to equip women with the skills needed to put their knowledge of the science of behavior and mental processes into practice.

Online courses across multiple areas of applied psychology (psychology of gender, industrial and organizational psychology, forensic psychology, health psychology, and community psychology) demonstrate the multiple ways in which psychological research can be used to inform and improve outcomes across broad swaths of society. A course in ethics, along with focused content on ethics, diversity, and culture, encourages students to think critically about the role and impact of applied practice. 

Students who graduate with this major are prepared for professional positions that call for a clear understanding of the role of psychological research in daily life; students who are considering graduate study at the master’s level in applied fields may also find this major and appropriate first step.

Wesleyan’s accelerated 100% online program for women will help you earn your degree quickly and efficiently because it is
  • transfer friendly 
  • eight weeks in length
  • offered in five sessions a year
  • flexible - you can attend full time or part time

Year-round admission means you can enroll at any time and complete your coursework whenever and wherever suits you best. Plus, your professional work experience will be considered for academic credit. At Wesleyan, financial aid is available, there are no hidden costs, and the technology requirements are minimal. Every student has dedicated support from award winning faculty and the tutoring center plus full access to Willet Library.
