Rosemont College Announces New Accelerated Applied Psychology Degree Program
Program Launches in Fall 2019, Available Fully Online
Rosemont College announces a new online Bachelor of Arts degree in Applied Psychology with classes beginning every seven weeks.
Rosemont’s bachelor’s degree in Applied Psychology is designed to enable adult students to learn how psychological perspectives can assist in understanding human behavior in social systems and apply that knowledge in corporate, family, and community settings.
“Our degree in Applied Psychology is designed for the working adult,” said Peter McLallen, Dean of the Schools of Graduate and Professional Studies. “Our accelerated seven-week courses help students immediately apply what they are learning in the classroom to their lives. The online format provides the flexibility needed to manage work, family, and school.”
Course offerings are both theoretical and applied and provide students with the opportunity to critically examine historical and contemporary perspectives on how people think, feel, and behave. The program prepares adult students for a full range of career options as well as for graduate study in counseling, psychology, or related fields.
Students in the program will learn and understand:
- Theories and research that have shaped the field of psychology
- Theories and models of multicultural counseling, cultural identity development, cultural diversity, social justice, and advocacy
- The role culture plays in shaping our thinking, perspectives, and behavior
- Major research designs used by psychologists to answer hypothesis
- How to integrate and apply therapeutic knowledge in both an applied/clinical setting and everyday life
Applications are being accepted now. Eligible students interested in continuing on for Rosemont’s master’s degree in Counseling can begin taking graduate courses while still an undergraduate.
