If you’re passionate about connecting with and serving others, Corban’s online psychology program will equip you with effective tools for a meaningful career.
In your bachelor’s degree program, you will explore the workings of the human mind. Why do we do the things we do? How do factors like personality, trauma, and age impact the way we think, feel, and behave? You’ll explore these areas and more as you learn how human beings relate to others, the world, and themselves.
Learn from supportive Christian faculty as you develop knowledge and skills that are useful for any people-oriented career, and also prepare you for graduate school if you choose to continue your education.
Choose from two concentrations to focus your degree on your specific interests and career goals.
The Counseling Psychology concentration focuses on a strong foundation of general psychology knowledge and skills and prepares you to make a difference in any people-oriented career. Students often continue to graduate school for training as a licensed professional counselor, marriage and family therapist, psychologist, trauma therapist, or social worker, or step immediately into careers with the Department of Human Services, community action agencies, non-profits, or any people-helping organization.
Family Studies graduates are prepared to work in a variety of human services occupations as case managers, rehab specialists, career counselors and more, or as church staff in family ministry positions. Family Studies students are also equipped to continue on to graduate school to pursue social work, counseling, or other psychology-related careers.
Learn what courses you’ll need to complete your degree.
- 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.
