Designed for adult learners, the distance education advantage of blended and distributed learning makes it possible to pursue advanced study and professional goals while balancing the demands of work, family, and community obligations. You join a cluster of highly qualified, adult students led by the faculty advisor in your geographic area. You also engage with other faculty, students, and alumni from across the country at session events and via e-mail, telephone, and the Internet. The community brings a rich diversity of prior learning and professional experience in psychology and related fields.

APA Accreditation
