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 (click here to preview a course) -- 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.
