Online Psychology Programs

Completing the B.S. in Psychology-Online

The 38-hour major in psychology at MTSU is one of several majors at MTSU that can be completed online. For your convenience, a list of core required courses and electives offered online is provided below, along with the semesters each course is typically offered (*based on previous years’ course offerings). In addition to satisfying the requirements for the 38-hour major, psychology majors also must satisfy the requirements for general education and the requirements for two 15-hour minors, as well as university graduation requirements. Please note that not every course in the department is offered online and that only a select number of non-core classes in the major are presently offered online. Students who are interested in completing their coursework for the major by taking online classes should carefully plan their course selections and verify with their advisor that a course is going to be offered when needed. The department reserves the right to change and or cancel course offerings due to budgetary and staff reductions and student need.
