EIU’s online psychology degree built for students with demanding schedules



(Charleston, IL) – Leaders of Eastern Illinois University’s online Psychology bachelor’s degree program are pleased to be able to help students achieve success by earning a psychology degree that they can work toward in the comfort of their own homes.

Currently, more than 30 students are enjoying the benefits of studying for a B.A. in Psychology online through EIU. According to program coordinators, those benefits include the opportunity to receive a degree while still being able to manage family and employment responsibilities away from campus, being able to pay in-state tuition regardless of where the students live, and the ability to earn a B.A. in Psychology with the same quality and content as they would receive in face-to-face classes.

According to recent surveys by the U.S. Census Bureau, students who earn a B.A. in Psychology are able to enjoy careers in a variety different fields, including social services, education, office support, and health care. The bureau also found that college graduates who have a psychology degree earn an average of more than $55,000 annually.

While this program usually sees its enrollment come from students who transfer in with an associate’s degree in psychology, all students in EIU’s online psychology program can still graduate, on average, in about five semesters.

Students who are enrolled in the online psychology program have the same opportunities to participate in internships and other interactive learning experiences as students who study on campus, according to those close to the program. The curriculum for the online courses is offered year-round, including during summer semesters, and the size of online classes averages fewer than 30 students.
