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.

“Our small class sizes allow students to be immersed in the rich variety that comes with courses focused on the individual, groups, and social situations. Faculty have a broad range of expertise and interests that help to personalize the classroom experience, as well as affording various real-world opportunities. Our award winning student organizations are among the oldest at RSU, further broadening student opportunities for professional growth and service to the academy and the community. Our graduates report that they are well-prepared for the workforce or graduate school, which is supported by the fact that so many have a job or a graduate placement immediately after graduation.” More About Dr. Woller
