Design a Career According to Your Goals and Interests
EKU’s online psychology program is real-world focused, providing the opportunity to design a degree plan that’s meaningful to each student’s interests and career path.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics* employment of substance abuse, behavioral disorder, and mental health counselors is projected to grow 23 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. Employment growth is expected as people continue to seek addiction and mental health counseling services. In addition, states are increasingly seeking treatment and counseling services for drug offenders as a cost-effective alternative to incarceration and as a method to reduce recidivism.
