Single Doctoral-Level Psychology Courses

At CalSouthern, students may enroll in a course at the doctoral level without committing to a degree program. It’s a great option for students who want to:

  • Get a feel for online learning at CalSouthern before pursuing a doctoral degree
  • Earn credits that can be applied toward a doctorate at CalSouthern or another institution*
  • Gain knowledge and expertise at the highest academic level in a topic of particular interest

Choose any of the doctoral courses from the CalSouthern’s School of Psychology. You’ll find a vast selection of subjects available, on topics as diverse as addiction, human sexuality, trauma, sports psychology, domestic violence and neuroscience.

Getting started is a quick and simple process. No entrance exams are required and you don’t have to provide official transcripts. A master’s degree is not required to take doctoral-level courses. (However, if you wish to commit to CalSouthern’s Doctor of Psychology program, a master’s degree is a prerequisite.) Courses start every month; you’ll never encounter a closed course or waiting list!

*Although credits from regionally accredited institutions like CalSouthern are readily accepted by other universities, acceptance is at the discretion of the receiving institution.
