About Psychology.org

Psychology has the potential to change countless lives, and the field continues to grow.

At Psychology.org, we strive to provide trustworthy and accessible information about psychology programs, careers, professional issues, and regional laws that concern the psychology profession.

Interest around psychology continues to grow, yet career paths for psychology students can be unclear, and information about the field can be even more inaccessible for nonprofessionals.

Skills earned in a psychology program are highly valuable and transferable, leading to careers in healthcare and nonhealth services.

They can also help everyday people progress in their mental health journeys. We provide clarity. All people should have access to trustworthy, understandable information about psychology.

On our site, you will find career guides for niches within psychology, articles on specialized degrees, lists of online psychology programs, financial aid resources, pages on state-specific laws for psychology professionals, and topical articles featuring expert interviews.

Psychology.org was founded in 1997 by William Palya, Ph.D., and Donald Walter, Ph.D., and has been operated by RV EDU, a digital portfolio of education websites, since 2019.

Our Editorial Process

Degree ranking pages are one of our site's main offerings. We specialize in reviewing online programs and publish lists by degree type, including best online Psy.D. programs, best online Ph.D. programs in psychology, and best master's and doctoral psychology programs.


We create our rankings by compiling data on postsecondary schools from the National Center for Education Statistics. Key factors include the school's reputation, affordability, and academic quality. Our ranking methodology page goes into further detail about our factors and formulas.
