Psychology Online

Corban’s online psychology program is designed with you in mind. It’s flexible, user-friendly, and 100% online. Whether you’re looking to advance in your current career, qualify for a new job opportunity, or gain the personal satisfaction of finishing your college degree, you’ll benefit from Corban’s psychology program.

You’ll develop a strong understanding of the world in which we live, what guides human behavior, and how we can live biblically and successfully. Why do we do the things we do? How do factors like personality, trauma, and age impact the way we think, feel, and behave? What is our role and responsibility as Christians?



For your online psychology degree, you’ll need a total of 120 semester credits:

48 credits of general education courses
These include courses in Bible, communications, history, math, writing, science, humanities and other general education topics.

27 credits of general education elective courses
Elective credits give you greater flexibility in what courses will make up your degree. For example, you may want to add a minor, transfer in an art class, or focus your degree in a specific area. You can take these courses at Corban, transfer in credits, or earn credit for prior learning experiences.

Program Format

  • Classes start every 8 weeks. You can begin classes in any session, and take one, two, or three classes each session, depending on what works for your schedule and goals. See the online undergraduate academic calendar.
  • Complete assignments at your pace each week. Classes are asychronous, which means you don’t have to be online at any specific day or time. Study when it works for you.
  • Connect with faculty and fellow students through discussion boards and team projects.


Our program minimizes the transactional distance between you and your instructors. You’ll have direct engagement with your professors through video content recorded by the Corban faculty you’ll be working with, as well as through discussion boards, timely feedback on assignments, email, and virtual office hours.

As a Corban online student, you will get to know your professors and be known by them. Our active classrooms are kept at about 15 students or less, which is half the size of most online programs. That means you not only have support in reaching your specific goals, but you also have a better opportunity to get recommendations and to have that mentor relationship to support you through and beyond your degree program.
