Psychology – Online Master’s MA, MS

The University of Oregon’s Online Master’s in Psychology (OMP) program aims to bridge the gap between practitioners and translational researchers who develop and test psychosocial and behavioral programs targeting the health and wellbeing of people across the lifespan.   

This program is designed for self-motivated professionals working in social services, behavioral health and related fields who are seeking to advance their careers and increase the impact of programs in their organizations and communities. The OMP provides an accessible, high-impact learning experience through a blend of online coursework and individualized project-based curriculum.  This program is not designed for general masters level training in psychology. Nor can we provide clinical training (practice and skills development) at the masters level.  

Program faculty are cutting-edge researchers with expertise in child and adult stress neurobiology, trauma and resilience, and evidence-based interventions for a range of psychological disorders across the lifespan. Students will gain a strong foundation in program development and evaluation methods and have opportunities to apply lessons from brain science to real-world problems.
