An Accelerated Degree Option in Psychology

Goddard's BA/MA Fast Track in Psychology and Counseling is a low-residency accelerated degree program that affords learners a seamless path to obtain their Bachelor's and Master's degree over a shorter period of time. 

Full- and Part-Time Study Options

  • Students may enroll for full-time study (five, 3-credit courses per semester) or part-time study (three, 3-credit courses per semester).  
  • The final 15-credit undergraduate semester of the program will also contribute 12 graduate credits to pursuit of the Master's Degree.  
  • Undergraduate BA/MA students not wishing to continue into the Master in Psychology and Counseling program, or not approved to do so, will have the opportunity to complete the Bachelor's degree in Psychology.

Goddard's Low-Residency Model

At Goddard, you do not need to be on campus full-time to pursue your Bachelor's or Master's degree.

Goddard's programs have been successfully designed to accommodate the lives of working adults: students attend an 8-day on-campus residency each semester and pursue their studies from home throughout the year under the guidance of faculty mentors.

Goddard offers the best of what distance education, online programs and traditional campus learning have to offer.  At Goddard you can:  

  • Study at home in the local community that shapes your learning.   
  • Connect with students, faculty and staff during an 8-day, on-campus residency each semester. 
  • Design your own degree with individualized guidance from faculty advisors.

Accreditation and Approvals

Goddard College is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).  The MA in Psychology and Counseling Program is a member of the Council of Applied Master’s Programs in Psychology (CAMPP).
