    GRADUATE CERTIFICATE
    PROGRAMS IN PSYCHOLOGY

    CalSouthern’s graduate certificate programs, offered through the School of Behavioral Sciences, are designed for learners who already hold a bachelor’s degree and who wish to explore a specific area of interest within the behavioral sciences. Earning a graduate certificate may help to demonstrate mastery of specific concepts or applications relevant to personal knowledge and an interest in professional development. Additionally, it could serve as preparation for future graduate study.

    Our graduate certificate programs  are designed for completion  in one year,* providing an opportunity to pursue post-baccalaureate instruction in a specific practical topic without requiring the long-term commitment of a degree program. These 100% online programs are offered in the areas of advanced addiction studies, healthcare services, industrial/organizational psychology, pastoral counseling, and sport psychology.
