July 05, 2018
Angelo State University’s online Master of Science in applied psychology degree program has been ranked No. 1 on the list of the nation’s “25 Best Master’s in General Psychology Programs Online” for 2018 by the Best College Reviews higher education resource guide.
Only general psychology programs at accredited colleges and universities were eligible for the rankings, which were based on curriculum customization options, course delivery options, tuition costs and unique features. Data for the rankings came from the respective university websites.
According to Best College Reviews, “These programs provide students with a convenient way to earn the credentials they need while still holding down a full-time job or fulfilling other obligations. This ranking focuses on general psychology degrees that still offer students ways to customize their education of both content and course completion.”
ASU was the only Texas public institution to have its program ranked by Best College Reviews, with the private LeTourneau University in Longview (No. 24) the only other Texas school to make the top 25.
