Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi BA Psychology - Online Completion

In keeping with the University’s mission, the Psychology department is devoted to discovering, communicating, and applying knowledge in a complex and changing world. The specific mission of the undergraduate program is three-fold: to provide a basic education within the field of psychology as a foundation for graduate work in a professional field of psychology, such as clinical or counseling psychology, cognitive psychology, social psychology, or developmental psychology; to provide disciplinary knowledge through a broadly-based curriculum which can be applied to related careers such as human services, business, communications, and research; and to contribute to the education of students majoring in other areas of study. An on-campus format provides a mix of face-to-face, blended and online courses. An online format provides all psychology requirements via the web. The course schedule for the online BA in Psychology will differ from on campus offerings and may not include all course options available to on-campus students.

American Sign Language is accepted. Language does not include artificial or computer languages.

One may satisfy this requirement in one of two ways:

  • earning a CLEP, AP, or ACTFL test score equivalent to one year of language study at A&M-Corpus Christi;
  • successfully completing two semesters of a single foreign language at the University.

If students decide to meet this requirement by taking two semesters in Spanish at this university, an assessment test must be taken prior to registering in order to enroll in the appropriate language course. Information about the Spanish Placement Test can be obtained from the College of Liberal Arts or by visiting its web site.

Foreign students who have successfully taken the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) may elect to choose English as their second language. English is considered to be the first language for all other students.
