Applied Psychology B.S.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Psychology at SUNY Cobleskill is a select program that will educate students on theoretical psychology and research, and provide them with direct applied experience via 15 credits of internship placement (including a concentrated, full time semester internship) that is integrated into the program. This is a unique program, one of only a few in New York State, and the only one in the state with the option for a Rural / Community Psychology concentration. The Applied Psychology B.S. will prepare students to directly enter the workforce at the paraprofessional level upon completion of the degree.
All Applied Psychology Students will experience shared core theoretical coursework first and second years. After that, students will choose a concentration that meets their individual career goals. Students will choose a Rural / Community Concentration, or an Industrial / Organizational concentration. These different concentrations will have coursework that is tailored to the focus, including an internship experience that suits the student’s concentration. The Rural / Community concentration focuses on advocacy or advancement in community environments, such as family and children, youth, drug and alcohol & poverty. Students in the Industrial / Organizational track will focus on business, organizational psychology, organizational communication and markets.
Students graduating from this program will have the knowledge, practical experience, and professional exposure to enter directly into the workforce.
