How to Choose an Online Psychology Course

One reader asks: "I am considering taking a psychology course on-line. Would you be able to provide me with information on how to find one that's right for me?"

online psychology courses

Taking an online psychology class can be a great way to get ahead in your studies. Before you choose a distance education course, you should first consider a few important questions.

  • Is the course offered by an accredited school? Accreditation is important because it means that the school offering the course has met the minimum criteria established by an outside organization. It helps protect students from being taken advantage of by diploma mills.

  • What's the class schedule like? If you are taking a summer course, it is especially important to ask about the schedule. Summer courses are usually much more condensed and accelerated than those offered during the Fall and Spring semesters. Make sure that you have the time and energy to take on the workload.

  • How much does the class cost? Finding a way to fund your online classes is another important concern. Check out the total cost of the class including tuition and textbooks before deciding if you can afford it.

  • Can you transfer the credits to another academic institution? If you plan to take an online course from a different college or university, make sure that you will be able to transfer the credits to your own school later on.

There are a number of different ways to find online psychology courses. Start by checking with colleges and universities in your state to see if they offer any summer distance education courses. The Social Psychology Network has a great collection of links to distance learning psychology courses. Also be sure to check out this list of free online classes compiled by Jamie Littlefield, About.com's Guide to Distance Learning.
