A Personalized Online Experience with Diverse Classmates and Faculty
Psychology@Pepperdine combines engaging online learning with in-person experiences so you can earn an esteemed graduate psychology degree without attending classes on campus.
Face-to-Face Online Classes
Attend seminar-style sessions in an online classroom where you will collaborate with approximately 14 other students. Each weekly class is taught by Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) professors, who are known for their wide range of clinical experience and dedication to graduate teaching.
Insightful Course Content
Reinforce your classroom learning as you watch video lectures and analyze case studies that can be downloaded or viewed anywhere with an Internet connection. Pepperdine GSEP professors have translated our on-campus course work into online content that brings current applied psychotherapy methods to life.
Students earning a Master of Arts in Psychology will complete a two-part Community/Clinical Research and Service course that provides hands-on experience volunteering at agencies near their areas.
Students earning a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) will work with our dedicated placement team to secure placements at Pepperdine-approved clinical partner sites near their areas.
Build your professional network and develop lasting connections with classmates and faculty whose diverse life experiences and perspectives will broaden your understanding of key concepts. With 24-hour access to the online campus, you can interact with peers and professors whenever they are available, both during and outside of weekly class sessions.
Your education will be rigorous and enriched by diverse professors and classmates who share your values.
