Oklahoma Christian offers two major degree programs in psychology. The B.S. degree is a pre-professional degree that emphasizes the preparing of the student for graduate school. Those student who wish to pursue Master's or Doctoral degrees are encouraged to pursue the B.S. degree. The vast majority of students at OC are in the B.S. degree program. The B.A. degree has as its emphasis a strong general education in the field of psychology for those students who may not want to go on for graduate work. The department recognizes that graduate school is not for everyone and also understands the value of having a general liberal arts degree in today's world. Enough preparatory classes are required that if a student later decides to seek admission into a graduate program, only a small number of leveling courses will typically be required.
