Overview

At the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, the Department offers a 36-credit Psychology Major as well as a 21-credit Psychology Minor. The major may be completed as either a Bachelor of Science (BS) or Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree. 

The Psychology Major is designed to create a strong background in research design, data interpretation, and application of psychological science to address important theoretical and applied problems and questions.
