Course Details

HELP University is proud to offer distinct pathways to attain a degree in Psychology. The primary pathway we offer is the Bachelor of Psychology (Honors) Program, which can be completed fully at HELP University. Students, if they so choose, may also transfer credits to affiliated universities. The American Degree Program (ADP) is the other pathway that HELP offers for those seeking a degree in psychology. The ADP however, is a transfer program and students are expected to transfer to universities after completing several years at HELP.
