CalSouthern's Online Graduate Degrees

Online Graduate Degree Programs Designed for Today’s World

An online graduate degree program from an accredited institution is tailor-made for today’s economy and competitive job market. On one hand, distinguishing yourself from the competition through post-graduate education has never been more important. But on the other, sky-rocketing tuition and the demands of our personal and professional lives make the traditional graduate school option a luxury that few of us can afford.

There is, however, another choice.

California Southern University offers online graduate degree programs in psychology, business, criminal justice, law and nursing. Each is affordable and online, so you can study on your own schedule at your own pace, without compromising your job or family life. And CalSouthern is regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Senior College and University Commission. Regional accreditation is the most highly respected and recognized form of accreditation, and it provides an assurance of academic quality and integrity.
