Master's Programmes


The Chicago School's online programs enable students with full-time work or family commitments to obtain a graduate education and achieve their personal and professional goals—without putting their current lives on hold.

A number of our programs are taught predominantly online with a small "synchronous virtual residency" component (a one- or two-hour session each term in which all students are expected to be online simultaneously), while other programs are offered in a "blended" format that combines both online and on-campus learning. Coursework is offered through Canvas -- an advanced interactive distance-learning tool--and is designed to be flexible, self-paced, and accessible. Building on our long tradition of producing outstanding psychology practitioners, our online programs combine the quality of a Chicago School education with the convenience that you need today.

Some great professors and others are horrible

My passion for education is my drive!

I have had an excellent experience except that I had to withdraw my studies for now to get sufficient finance.

An impact to my future goals
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

I previously enrolled in the I/O program and after a semester felt it was not for me as I am more health inclined. The switch to counseling psych was effortless and I am grateful for the experiences so far. I have got the opportunity to learn from professors who practice and the knowledge impacts me to the fullest.
