Nov 2, 2012, 5:53 PM | Updated: 7:25 pm

One of the most attractive online degrees by far is in the realm of psychology, where reputable universities make it possible to earn a legitimate terminal degree. A masters degree or a doctorate in psychology enables you to actually earn a substantial living in your chosen field, and is highly sought after in business and academia, for a multitude of supportive and lead positions. In addition to the wide range of attributes understanding human behavior and motivation gives you – especially if you already have a knack for understanding people – the ability to earn online degrees helps you manage your surrounding day-to-day activities while you’re pursuing the degree much more easily.

The Unique Qualifications a Psychology Doctorate Gives You

There are many sub-fields you can choose in psychology, as online, accredited colleges offer a range of options comparable to traditional brick-and-mortar universities, at greater personal convenience. Specifically for the P.h.D, you can opt for business psychology, educational psychology, and many more, which are specifically tailored for the industry you are considering after graduation. An online doctoral degree will arm you with the knowledge to be considered an expert in psychoanalytic, cognitive or behavioral psychology.

There’s a common misconception that online degrees are somehow less intensive or not worth quite as much as university degrees; but this is held only by worried prospective students. There isn’t an industry anywhere that holds the degree in less esteem than any other, because they are aware the curriculum will prepare just as well as a degree obtained anywhere else, given the high success rates of degree holders that add their valuable skills to the workplace today. Psychologists with doctorates function as counselors and industrial organizers in all manner of businesses and academic settings, making the time you can save by choosing the online option a considerable advantage over the alternative, since they’re worth the same to your intended career.

Many psychologists who obtain their doctorate online eventually decide to become individual consultants, not aligning themselves with any single organization or company. The license to practice you will obtain by successfully completing your course-load at an accredited online college will allow you to be your own boss for the term of your working years, if you so desire. Essentially, once you begin the flexible though challenging path to an online psychology doctorate, the options you will have available to you upon completion will enable you to continue as a certified professional and set your own hours and clients. The demand for psychologists is growing in virtually every industry, and you will be poised to take advantage of any attractive offer you wish.
