Our online applied psychology program is designed to teach students about how psychology can be used to address many serious issues facing us today. These issues include, but are not limited to:
- Improving health
- Increasing safety
- Improving education
- Increasing prosperity
- Enhancing decision-making
- Promoting democratic principles
We teach our students how to use innovative ways to share solutions to practical problems with the general public. Students learn how to take complex topics and break them down so they are more easily understood by the masses.
The program is completely online, but students may elect to complete some courses in a traditional classroom setting.
What To Do With a Master’s Degree in Applied Psychology
Our graduates are employed in a wide variety of settings, but many work within human service agencies.
Most of the students in our applied psychology program are working toward one of these two goals:
- Earning a master’s degree for professional advancement
- Teaching at the community college or university level
Our program is not for students who wish to be therapists or to obtain their LPC or LPA. Students interested in these occupations should look at our counseling psychology program.
