Affordable Colleges Online lists Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College (SMWC) second in the nation for best online psychology programs. A leading resource for online learning and college affordability information, Affordable Colleges Online has published its new ranking of 2015’s Top Online Psychology Degrees. Schools included offer students the best combination of online program quality, affordability and student support.

"To find the best schools offering the highest quality online education for psychology students, we looked beyond the sheer number of programs available and the total cost of a degree,” said Dan Schuessler, founder and CEO of Affordable Colleges Online. "Our data team spent months researching hundreds of available psychology degree programs to find out which schools truly make a difference with stand-out academics, resources and student support services."

Affordable Colleges Online used a proprietary scoring system to evaluate hundreds of colleges with the best online psychology program options.

With more than 40 years of delivering distance education, SMWC offers 25 online degree programs to prepare students for the competitive workforce. The flexibility and convenience of Woods Online allows students to balance family, work and education.

“The Psychology program at the Woods is distinctive, in that class sizes are relatively small, enabling faculty to know and really develop professional relationships with each and every one of their students,” states Glenna Simons, social and behavioral sciences department chair at SMWC. “Faculty encourage and work with students to develop their own original research projects and internships that enhance the student's ability to enter graduate level programs or to find employment in a variety of fields.”

Psychology is among the top majors in Woods Online. Students with a degree in the field have extensive career options in areas such as education, research, public health, politics and more.

"There are hundreds of career options for students with degrees in psychology," said Schuessler. “Online learning allows students and working professionals to gain both educational and professional experience simultaneously.”
