To get started in an online degree program, you’ll need to consider whether you want to go to a school that is 100% online, or if you are looking for a hybrid program. Hybrid programs are often ideal for graduate psychology degrees. Colleges understand the need for flexible scheduling and dynamic coursework and want to work with you to help you learn and grow in your professional development.
If you’re ready to further your psychology education with a master’s degree, or even a Doctorate, you’ll need to be ready to narrow down your field of interest. Typically, you’ll need to do a research project or thesis, as well as prove your ability to execute database searches, synthesize literature and understand and interpret research methodology.
