  • Get a feel for online learning at CalSouthern before pursuing a master’s degree
  • Earn credits that can be applied toward a master’s degree at CalSouthern or another institution*
  • Gain master’s-level knowledge and expertise in a topic of interest

Choose any master’s-level course offered by CalSouthern’s School of Psychology. You’ll find a vast selection of subjects available, on topics as diverse as addiction, human sexuality, organizational psychology, marriage and family therapy and psychopathology.

Getting started is a quick and simple process. No entrance exams are required and you don’t have to provide official transcripts. A bachelor’s degree is not required to take master’s-level courses.
