Earning your BS in Psychology

OKWU’s Psychology degree completion program is designed to allow graduates in this major the opportunity to serve our hurting world in many different capacities.

More than a degree!

“Doing the type of work that the psychology program prepares students to do is a high calling,” says Dr. Gentry Sutton, Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences. “In addition to preparing students for graduate-level study, our curriculum challenges students to address the discipline biblically and use the professional skills gained in the program to love and help others.”

“Our instructors will bring wisdom steeped in practice as well as solid academic pedigrees to the program. I am glad that we are now able to make our gifted psychology instructors available to more students,” Sutton adds.
