Question by SSocks13: Who offers the best distance Educational Psychology Masters?
I want to a Masters in Educational Psychology but I don’t want to travel. Which University do you think offers the best distance / online programme for that discipline?
Answer by dgldgl3000
I honestly don’t know who offers distance education in psychology. However, I would say, as a Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.), that a master’s degree in psychology would lose quite a bit of depth and quality. There are many reasons a traditional education is better suited for those who intend on practicing psychology (e.g., having a personal mentor; learning with others and inspiring others; the emotional support of fellow students; being able to debrief one another after a particularly stressful session; and assessing the clinical skills you have learned, etc.) However, if you do choose to do an online school, it is imperative that you make sure it is accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting agency. If you plan on going further in your education, you will want to makes sure it is not a terminal master’s degree. You will also want to makes sure it is accredited by the American Psychological Association. You will also want to make sure it meets the requirements of the state you are practicing in for state licensure. Those are just a few helpful hints and thoughts.
