Bachelor of Science in Applied Psychology

Robert Morris University



Applied psychology is the branch of psychology that seeks to apply current psychological principles to practical problems in the workplace and everyday life. The applied psychology major at Robert Morris University provides education and training in psychology to prepare students for successful careers or graduate programs in psychology and related fields, such as child care, counseling, research, law or social work.

This program is unique for several reasons. First, by completing the required RMU core, students gain computer and communications skills not typically found in other psychology programs. Secondly, the program requires completion of an academic minor and a two-semester practicum experience, in which students complete a minimum of 120 hours of supervised work in a setting that meets their career interests. Finally, 27 credits of open electives allow students to fulfill requirements of another major or minor, or to select a broader range of courses.
