About the Department

The Department of Psychology and Sociology offers a variety of degrees that prepare students to work or further their study in fields such as therapeutic services, health and medical services, human resources, and social services.

Why Choose Psychology and Sociology at RSU?

Psychology and sociology studies help students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills. Graduates go on to work in fields that address both the individual and societal factors that impact community wellness.

Students have the opportunity to pursue a bachelor’s degree in community counseling or in social science. The social science degree allows students to specialize in psychology, sociology or environmental studies.

RSU has partnered with Cameron University to allow RSU students to transition from RSU’s Associate in Arts in Elementary Education to Cameron’s Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education without changing campuses.

Drue DayDrue Day
Bachelor of Science in Social Science: Psychology

“The department offers a lot of opportunities, like Mental Wealth Day, that help students see what is possible for their future. As students we conduct our own research and can present it at national conferences, which is a huge opportunity. Whenever I need help, want to talk about a theory or principle, or just need to talk, my professors are always there. They have gone above and beyond to assist not only in my success as a student, but also in my overall development as an individual. They’re really my greatest allies and biggest support for succeeding. At RSU, I feel like I’ve found a program that I am comfortable with and excel at.”
