Psychology, B.A. and B.S

Mostly Online Psychology Degree

Mostly Online Psychology

The Psychology Major allows students to choose one of five concentrations: General, Behavioral Neuroscience, Child, Clinical, or Cognitive.

Mostly Online Programs

A mostly online degree program is a program that offers most course work in an online format with a limited number of required on-campus courses or meetings. Because online course availability and scheduling changes by semester and varies by concentration, students are encouraged to contact us using the form below to be put in touch with the appropriate academic advisor. 

General Psychology

This is the most common degree awarded in the country, and will be excellent preparation regardless for any career trajectory. Any minor offered by ETSU can be taken with the General Psychology Concentration. Selection of a minor can be strategic to combine a particular subject of study with Psychology, or can be something of interest.
