Program Description

Psychology is the study of mind and behavior. UH West Oʻahu offers a Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences with a concentration in Psychology degree that integrates practical mental health applications with current theory. Students select courses from four clusters: Human Development; Social Psychology; Experimental Psychology; and Clinical and Applied Psychology. The program culminates with a final senior seminar capstone course that is designed to guide students in the research and writing of a review paper on a topic of psychology. Through these course offerings, students will gain a strong understanding of psychological theory and methodology, while developing effective analytical and interpersonal skills. Courses are offered in-class and through distance learning instruction. UH West Oʻahu does not offer completely online-only degree programs. Lower division coursework needs to be completed via in-person and online classes at UH West O'ahu and/or a partnering University of Hawaiʻi Community College.
