This baccalaureate program delivered through Distance Education has been established as a transfer program for students who have completed the first two years of coursework (freshman and sophomore) in-person or online at UH West Oʻahu, from a community college in the UH system or from an accredited institution outside of the UH System.

Psychology is the study of mind and behavior. UH West Oʻahu offers a Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences with a concentration in Psychology that integrates practical mental health applications with current theory. Students select courses from four clusters: human development; social psychology; experimental psychology; and clinical and applied psychology. The program culminates with a final senior seminar capstone course that is designed to guide students in the research and writing of a review paper on a topic of psychology. Through these course offerings, students will gain a strong understanding of psychological theory and methodology, while developing effective analytical and interpersonal skills.
