Be ready for what's next

Research Opportunities

Be a part of psychological research as an undergraduate. Work closely with students as junior colleagues, mirroring the mentorships of graduate programs. Many of our students present their research at state, regional, and national conferences. These kinds of experiences get you noticed by graduate schools and employers.

Internship Opportunities

All of our students are guaranteed and complete at least one internship prior to graduation. During internships, students work in an applied community setting, side-by-side with professional psychologists. Interns have worked in clinical therapeutic settings, for both adults and children, in parenting programs, in schools, at the Federal Aviation Administration with industrial and organizational psychologists, and with forensic psychologist, in legal settings. Internships are valued by graduate programs and employers.

Practical Courses

Our curriculum provides a foundation in critical thinking, report writing, research methods, and statistics as well as application of information. These are skills employers and graduate programs look for in applicants. Over the years our majors have successfully completed graduate programs in psychology, sociology, medicine, law, nursing, and religion/theology. Graduates have secured employment in less than three months.

Individualized Attention

Our small class size lets the faculty work closely with each student. Advanced courses usually average 10 to 15 students. We work with you to create your program. The individualized attention also allows us to incorporate more “hands on” application/experiential exercises into our classes.

Organizations for Psychology

We have two organizations that are active within our department. Psi Chi, the national psychology honor society, has a prize-winning chapter at OKCU. We also have NAMI at OKCU. This is a newly formed campus chapter for the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The purpose of the chapter is to promote awareness of mental illness in an attempt to reduce the stigma associated with it.
