The department's curriculum is one of the best to further the development of students' critical thinking, communication skills, research skills, quantitative reasoning, and ethical behavior. The Psychology Department offers a selection of online courses that can fulfill the requirements for the bachelor’s degree, typically in two years.
Our online degree completion program is best suited for a student who has completed an associate degree (or at least some college), Introductory Psychology, and College Algebra (or a higher-level math course). It is one of the most affordable and flexible bachelor’s degrees for those who have completed their general education requirements and wish to transfer to an online psychology program.
Transfer Students may be eligible for the Transfer Academic Excellence Scholarship, which can be up to $2,500/year! Other scholarships are also available.
“My research interests include applying behavioral parent training strategies to the classroom to help teachers better manage student behavior. Undergraduate students work with me on projects examining teachers’ natural rates of praise statements and finding simple strategies to increase teachers’ use of praise. Students also work with me on projects examining pediatric sleep problems and intervention. These research experiences benefit students who are interested in working with children, teachers, and families."
"My research interests are how to improve teaching and learning in the classroom, particularly with the use of technology. I also am interested in the biological impact of psychological stress. I supervise research projects of undergraduate and graduate students who conduct research on a variety of topics.”
"I cannot thank EIU enough for rescuing my academic career. After 10 years out of school I was able to transfer in to EIU online and complete my bachelor’s in two years while working full-time. Their program is flexible, and the staff work with you to get your requirements met. Thank you EIU!"Anna Gibson (Fall 2021)
"This program is a special one, along with excellent teachers and a wide variety of engaging courses, it’s affordable. I feel fortunate to have earned my degree here and I greatly appreciated the online format, otherwise, I may not have been able to earn my degree this year or as planned."Allegra Wentworth (Fall 2020)
"I feel the online psych program at EIU prepared me as well as a face-to-face program. My professors were always there to help me in a timely manner and keep me going through the rough patches. I would recommend this program to anyone needing a flexible schedule but not at the cost of a quality education."Christopher Schmidt (Summer 2020)
"I'm so glad I found EIU! I had wonderful professors who always made me feel so supported and prepared me for post-graduation life. Because of this program I was fortunate enough to find employment just a few months after graduation."Unyque Morrison (Summer 2019)
"This program helped me achieve the goals I had set out for myself when I was a freshman in high school. I looked at a lot of different programs but very few offered the flexibility I was looking for. I have a very demanding work schedule so being able to work at my own pace and alongside people who were working just like me was amazing. Even though it was a completely online program, EIU still offered a sense of community."Samantha Carter (Fall 2018)
"I am beyond thankful for the Online Psychology Program at EIU! I was living on campus at another college and realized it was a bad fit for me. I came across the Online Program and immediately reached out to see about transferring. My advisor was helpful during my entire journey! I not only gained my bachelor’s degree, but I also strengthened my communication skills and learned how to manage my time, which are bonus perks of getting your degree online."Jena Allen (Fall 2018)
"Many of us find it challenging to go back to school after having developed such busy lives. With the support of my professors, academic counselor, and the flexibility that is offered at EIU’s online Psychology Program, I was able to finish my degree, even while balancing a full-time work schedule. I would recommend this program to anyone, as it has opened so many more employment opportunities for me."Destiny Diamond (Fall 2018)
