With Hamline’s online degree completion program, you’ll find the path that’s right for you, featuring:
- A liberal arts education grounded in career-enhancing competencies such as critical thinking, collaborative problem-solving, and communications skills across platforms.

The program is offered fully online. Courses are taught in eight-week sessions with six sessions per year (two sessions each in fall, spring, and summer semesters). See the Academic Calendars for specific session dates.
Students choose the pace that fits best with their schedule; they may enroll part-time, full-time, or alternate. Students may take up to two courses per eight-week session, and are considered full-time if enrolled in 12 or more credits across a 16-week semester.
There are two degree options in the Online Degree Completion program:
- Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology
