For individuals in the helping professions who want to gain knowledge in psychology or help prepare themselves for an advanced degree, the Applied Psychology concentration provides a foundation. Students will learn about psychological development at all stages of life, study the most common psychological disorders and keys to effective diagnoses, and improve their abilities in research, statistics, and data analysis.
Choose 13 courses from general education, BS in Psychology, or other Walden bachelor’s degree programs. At least four courses must be at the 3000–4000 level. Elective credits should total 65 to meet the program requirements. Students may also be eligible to transfer previous credit to meet their elective requirements.
Note on Minors: Electives can also be used to complete a six-course minor.
