The online MS in psychology degree program is an excellent option for a wide variety of students. People who are already working in mental health can utilize the MS to both enhance their skill sets and to position themselves for career advancement. The MS may also be the preferable degree program for people who want to transition into CalSouthern’s doctoral program and then perhaps pursue licensure as a licensed psychologist — it provides the most direct route to CalSouthern’s doctoral degree: the PsyD. Students in CalSouthern’s online MS in psychology program will benefit from a dedicated and accessible community of faculty, administration (even the deans readily make themselves available to you should you require their guidance), staff, and fellow students who are all eager to support you in your educational journey. Your faculty, as well as your personal academic advisor, are highly educated, experienced mental health professionals who are happy to share their expertise.
It won’t take long for you to see what makes CalSouthern—and its School of Behavioral Sciences—different. It may be an online degree program—with the convenience and flexibility that allow adult, working students to study at their own pace and on their own time—but the dedication to service, integrity, and academic excellence combine to make CalSouthern a very humanistic, supportive environment. Explore CalSouthern and see the difference for yourself.
This program places an emphasis on science and research and in obtaining practical experience in a non-clinical setting. The MS in Psychology is designed to be generally applicable to related fields, but does not lead to licensure as a MFT. The curriculum covers both the theoretical knowledge needed to offer integrated services that can be applied to sport psychology, pastoral counseling, life-coaching, and consultation in business and industry.
