Apa Accredited Online Programs – On Finding An Apa Approved Online School

More and more, internet based educations in healthcare are earning the respect of employers and academics. Now it is even possible to find online programs that can lead to a Ph.D. accredited by the American Psychology Association, or APA.

The APA, like other respected accreditation institutions, carefully serves the public by evaluating and reviewing academic programs. They then provide a comprehensive list of these programs, and periodically reevaluate and update their findings.

Hector Milla Editor of the “Best Online Degrees Programs” website — http://www.BestOnlineDegreeProgramsUSA.com — pointed out;

“…Unfortunately, there are very few online doctoral programs in psychology at this time, and since the APA’s guidelines are so stringent, none are accredited. However, while the APA does not currently accredit any online doctoral program in psychology, there are many distance learning schools that may lead to entry into an APA accredited program or to a non-accredited Ph.D…”

Some of the programs currently offered are from:

• Kaplan University
