We are an in person program not an online program. We do have some online options for courses but the degree itself cannot be completed online.

Excellence in teaching and research are hallmarks of the faculty in the Department of Psychology at Cal Poly Humboldt. Faculty members are drawn to the university by its stellar reputation for quality instruction, smaller classes, and excellent students, as well as the scenic beauty of a campus nestled between a redwood forest and the Pacific Ocean.

The Department of Psychology at Humboldt offers an undergraduate major leading to the B.A. degree, a minor program, course options for general education requirements and electives, service courses for other majors, and three active graduate programs leading to the M.A. degree, including preparation for the California School Psychology Credential, and preparation for licensure as Marriage Family Therapist (MFT).
