What is Professional Psychology?

No matter which area of psychology you study, the primary focus lies in discovering the root cause of human behavior. The career path is different, however. Counseling psychologists treat people while graduates with a degree in professional psychology use their knowledge for business applications. Our accredited degree allows graduates to begin or further careers in health and human resource services, market analysis and communication, or director roles in various management operations.


CBU Global College requires no application fee. Our dynamic faculty and instructional designers ensure 24/7 online access to the classroom, so students can study their coursework on their availability. The degree programs have been redesigned to include those courses you can use to build your career.
