Wright State’s undergraduate degree in psychology offers you a solid foundation in theory, research methodology, statistics, and scientific writing. There are also many opportunities for you to get involved in scientific research with our distinguished faculty members in our state-of-the-art research facilities. An undergraduate psychology degree at Wright State is not in liberal arts but in Wright State’s College of Science and Mathematics, placing it alongside other scientific disciplines (physics, biological sciences, chemistry, etc.)
The Psychology department offers a Bachelor of Arts degree (B.A.) or Bachelor of Science degree (B.S.) as well as a minor in Psychology. If interested in the B.S., you may also choose among four concentrations: clinical psychology, industrial/organizational psychology, behavioral neuroscience, and cognition and perception.
You can pursue graduate work in Human Factors and Industrial Organizational Psychology. We offer a Master’s of Science that is course-based and can be completed in one year. This program is identified as the Human Performance and Effectiveness concentration. We also offer a traditional Master’s of Science that includes a thesis as well as a doctorate (Ph.D) that follows the thesis-based M.S. You can choose to major in Industrial Organizational Psychology or Human Factors though you take courses in both areas.
