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.
