Psychology online – only from Bemidji State!

Bemidji State is the only Minnesota State school to offer a convenient online bachelor’s degree-completion program in Psychology.

The BSU Department of Psychology is excited to offer this program, which affords great flexibility to working or off-campus students. You may choose to earn either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree. There are no differences in the course requirements, and in general, the two degrees are equally respected by employers and graduate schools.

Notes: If your liberal education and elective degree requirements are complete, consider double-majoring with another online program. We suggest Criminal Justice, Marketing Communication, Business Administration, Applied Management, or Nursing (RN-to-BS). In addition, plan to continue your psychology studies in graduate school, to better your odds of landing a great job as a professional.

Program Highlights


You must transfer at least 24 semester credits to begin this online degree-completion program. Consider completing the Minnesota transfer curriculum first, to simplify your major and degree requirements from BSU.
