Online Master of Psychology Degrees

There are several excellent accredited online graduate programs in psychology, including what is perhaps the most challenging master's level degree in the field: the master's in clinical psychology. An online psychology degree is fairly manageable as online degrees go, with the exception of those specializations that require a practicum. Clinical psychology is one of those. Students are required to complete a certain number of hours working as an intern of sorts, providing counseling in a supervised situation working with a mentor. That's something the student must arrange in a distance learning program as field work hours are essential for any state licensing program for clinical psychologists or counselors of any sort. The best online Master of Psychology programs that offer clinical psychology have worked out a method to assist students in locating a practicum opportunity.

  • Kaplan University has a Master of Science in Psychology degree that is offered as a general graduate level course of study in the field. There are also two available areas of specialization for the degree. The MS in Psychology for Applied Behavioral Analysis focuses on treatment of the disabled, autistic, and those traumatized by neurological injury. The MS in Psychology for Addictions provides extensive background in psychopharmacology since so many substance abuse cases today involve drugs, with or without alcohol.
