Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) January 31, 2007
Drexel University Online (http://www.drexel.com), winner of the 2006 21st Century Best Practice Award for Distance Learning from the U.S. Distance Learning Association, launches an undergraduate online degree in Psychology.
The new online Bachelor of Science in Psychology will teach students how to frame questions and discover useful answers regarding human behavior, cognition and emotion. Skills acquired in this program include research methods, statistics, critical evaluation and an understanding of the practical applications of psychological science.
Psychology seeks the answers to a broad variety of questions regarding brain and behavior. These questions range from the biological basis of cognition and brain function through psychological and social factors that play a role in development, health, rehabilitation, and everyday living.
Like Drexel's other online degree programs, this fully-accredited online degree in psychology is offered entirely online, and is intended for working professionals. Students will have 24/7 online access to class materials, group discussion, instructor feedback and exams.
"We're very proud to offer our students the outstanding Drexel curriculum within this convenient online format. All of our online programs -- including our new Bachelor of Science in Psychology -- are taught by the same world-renowned faculty as our on-campus courses," said Dr. Kenneth Hartman, academic director of Drexel Online.
Applications for Drexel's undergraduate online degree in psychology are now being accepted. The next term begins in April 2007, with a March 2, 2007 application deadline. For more information about this online program, visit Drexel's online degree website or call (877) 215-0009.
