The field of psychology can be rewarding, interesting, and versatile. As one of our most popular undergraduate programs, Liberty’s Bachelor of Science (BS) in Psychology can help prepare you for a variety of career or graduate school tracks. What will a degree in psychology do for you?

You want more out of your job — more opportunities for personal and professional growth. Choosing to complete a bachelor of psychology is a great way to get more. Partner with Liberty University and pursue an online psychology degree to gain the knowledge you need to help people overcome adversity, increase well-being, and achieve their goals.

Is a bachelor’s in psychology worth it?

Understanding human behavior requires that you have a grasp on how people develop from childhood to adulthood. At Liberty, we want to equip you with this knowledge so you can help your clients and coworkers improve their emotional, relational, and spiritual well-being. Throughout this degree, you can also learn how to organize, monitor, and interpret research.

In order to prepare you with confidence, your BS in Psychology helps provide you with the opportunity to practice your skills in the field. This can take place in your optional psychology internship, where you can receive industry-specific training to jumpstart your career. And by choosing one of our specializations, you can tailor your experience to the specific field you want to practice in.

No matter which specialization you choose, you’ll still take a series of core psychology classes online that make up a solid foundation that you can use in a variety of contexts. You will study human biology, general psychology, developmental psychology, and statistics for the social sciences. 

From there, you will venture into psychological research, social psychology, behavioral modification, and psychology of personality. You will also study multicultural and research issues, statistics in psychology, and psychological foundations of learning. Additionally, this online psychology degree covers physiological psychology, how psychology and Christianity coexist, psychological measurement, and abnormal psychology. 

In addition to this online psychology degree’s core courses, you are able to choose a specialization. That way, you can supplement your newfound psychological expertise with studies in an area you’re most passionate about.

Finally, this psychology degree online also allows you to complete an optional internship – through which you can gain valuable, hands-on experience in a setting that interests you. If you would rather not complete an internship, this degree requires a psychology capstone course – which will challenge you to draw on the lessons you’ve learned through our online psychology degree and apply them to various scenarios.
