GROW YOUR CAREER OR PREPARE FOR GRADUATE TRAINING IN A FIELD THAT IMPACTS THE LIVES OF INDIVIDUALS.
A bachelor’s degree in psychology will help you understand human behavior and prepare you for graduate work or a broad range of career fields. True to our Catholic Benedictine values, we look at psychology as a way to understand, serve and be open to others.
Our Watertown campus specializes in helping working adults complete their undergraduate degree to advance their careers. You’ll take core courses such as personality theory, social psychology, counseling and physiological psychology and choose from electives such as health psychology, abnormal psychology, sport psychology and group dynamics. Through these classes, you will explore what motivates human behavior and use that knowledge to understand both normal and abnormal behavior. Learn why people choose Mount Marty.

“I hadn’t been in a classroom for over twelve years and academics was never easy for me. The convenient location allowed me to attend afternoon, evening and night classes. I knew enrolling in a four-year college was going to be a challenge, but I did it and graduated in May 2013.”
