CIIS' three-semester Bachelor of Science in Psychology is offered in two formats:
- Online with a campus-based, two-day intensive to begin each semester
- Online-Hybrid, which meets four weekends each semester with the rest of the work online
The curriculum is composed of 36 units of required core coursework, and further work chosen from approved psychology electives and School of Undergraduate Studies electives, including those that meet general education requirements.
The psychology electives allow you to deepen your particular interest or area of study, such as developmental psychology, trauma and addiction studies, or cultural psychology.
As a student entering the program, you will have an academic plan outlining your transfer units, degree requirements, and your courses for the year, so that you know exactly when you will be graduating.
Students need a minimum of 54 transfer units in order to be admitted to the program, and generally complete the program in three-to-four semesters (depending upon the number of transfer units).
Electives and General Education Courses
Students entering the program with fewer than 80 transfer units and/or with unmet general education requirements will need to take elective and/or general education courses to complete their degree.
Students can opt to take their elective courses either in the School of Undergraduate Studies or in select graduate courses offered to undergraduate students.
