Q: Why should I get my psychology degree at Oregon Tech instead of somewhere else?
The Oregon Tech Applied Psychology Program is one of few truly applied programs in the nation! We provide students with significant hands-on learning and field experiences which better prepare them for graduate school or immediate employment after graduation. For example, courses in basic and advanced counseling, behavioral modification, and externships in the community offer advanced applied skills that make our candidates highly employable.
Our university is student-centered, our faculty-to-student ratios are low, and our faculty are fully invested in advising and supporting our students to achieve their specific goals within the field of psychology. We offer opportunities for students to participate in Psych Club, Psi Chi, teaching assistantships, faculty supported research, and faculty led youth mentorship and/or family mentoring programs, some of which are paid.
