Earn Two Psychology Degrees in Five Years

If you are an undergraduate psychology or behavioral sciences student at Point Park University interested in expanding your career options in the psychology field, explore our accelerated, dual degrees 4+1 program.

Our unique program gives you an affordable opportunity to earn both a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology — and a Master of Arts in community psychology — in five years.

This program allows you to apply to the M.A. community psychology program during your junior year, and if accepted, take 12 credits of graduate classes during your senior year (six credits in the fall and six credits in the spring).

In your fifth year, you would then take the remaining 24 graduate credits (12 per semester) to complete your M.A. degree.
