Social Psychology blends the strengths of psychology and sociology. It studies the “person in the situation,” and integrates knowledge about individual, group, and organizational processes. It is an adaptable major that trains students for a wide range of career options, and it is personally useful in every facet of your life beyond mere employment. Social psychology trains you to see yourself, others, and the cultures and societies we live in more clearly, critically, and completely. It equips you with a set of tools useful for a wide range of careers in business and industry, government, applied social research, data analysis and interpretation, policy and program implementation, the helping and service professions, or continued graduate study in psychology or sociology.
The Park University Social Psychology major combines a solid core in the field with a number of flexible, specialized concentrations that allow you to tailor the degree to your needs and interests.
