Evaluating Online Psychology Degrees

Trying to sort out which online psychology programs are worth the investment? Here’s a quick checklist of things to look for:

  • Regional accreditation for the school
  • APA-accredited doctoral programs (even if you are only doing an undergraduate degree, APA accreditation is a mark of quality for the psychology department)
  • “Brick and mortar” campus as well as distance learning programs
  • The number of full-time faculty who hold doctorates and have won awards for psychology research or online teaching
  • Programs approved for professional licensure requirements
  • Research opportunities
  • Clinical practicums
  • APA-accredited internships
Note: If you’re thinking of using your credits for a degree further down the track (e.g. associate’s to bachelor’s or bachelor’s to master’s), you should also make sure your online credits will be transferable.

APA Accreditation & Online Doctoral Degrees

To become a clinical psychologist, you must attend an APA-accredited program. APA only accredits doctoral programs (PhD, PsyD, EdD) in clinical, counseling and school psychology. So APA accreditation issues won’t apply to online bachelor’s or master’s degrees.

According to the APA, there are no APA-accredited programs available that only use online methods of instruction. This does not include programs that offer distance learning courses as part of the degree. For example, Fielding Graduate University offers an APA-accredited hybrid PhD in Clinical Psychology that combines online courses with campus sessions. Unfortunately, hybrid doctoral degrees are very rare.

The upshot is – you cannot get an online PhD or PsyD and qualify for clinical psychologist licensure requirements.
