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.

Adriann Annan ’17, B.S. Social Sciences: Sociology

“I work for Hilti North America training to be a level 2 account manager and should be moving to the east coast within 10 months. Hilti recruited me through LinkedIn and said they were interested in me based on my skills and the way I presented myself online. Developing my LinkedIn profile was a required assignment during Internship II. In a way, Professor Mackey is responsible for helping me jump into a career before I graduated! Hilti has an inclusive and diverse environment and their service to the community is amazing. I’m thrilled with my decision to join their team!”
