Psychology Students and Online Graduate Programs: A Need to Reexamine Undergraduate Advisement
Bendersky, Karen; Isaac, Walter L.; Stover, Jason H.; Zook, Joan M.
Teaching of Psychology, v35 n1 p38-41 Jan 2008
Few online psychology graduate programs are accredited and thus may not provide students with the same career opportunities as programs from traditional universities. We investigated whether psychology majors are more likely than other majors to consider applying to online graduate programs and whether students considering these programs have identifiable demographic characteristics. Forty-five percent of the surveyed psychology majors considered applying to online graduate programs. The students most interested in these programs were working and had lower GPAs. Results highlight the importance of identifying and then providing appropriate advisement to psychology undergraduates who might consider applying to online graduate programs.
