Life University - MS Positive Psychology
#1
While I was looking for similar programs to Logan University and Eastern Virginia Medical School, I came across an interesting RA program, Wikipedia states: Life University's M.S. in Positive Psychology is one of just three similar programs in the entire United States. If you can attend the 3 weekend residencies, it's a good program, some may want to ladder after the Human Biology degree @ Logan U.

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_University
Program Info: https://www.life.edu/academic-pages/grad...sychology/
Online Track Note: Three in-person, weekend residencies are also required for graduation.
Tuition $284/credit ($13,632 if you can finish in a year) - https://www.life.edu/admissions-pages/co...ttendance/

I found the program under "Basic Classifications" http://carnegieclassifications.iu.edu/lo...andard.php
There are 35 Special Focus Four-Year: Medical Schools & Centers
There are 288 Special Focus Four-Year: Other Health Professions Schools

A couple of recent threads from Sanantone points to two schools that can be found in this list.
1) https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...ch-Project
Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Vi...cal_School
2) https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...an-Biology
Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logan_University

Another fun fact is that the Carnegie Classifications also have NA school programs from Associates, Bachelors to Masters & Doctorates. It's not just Medical/Health professions, they have other classifications as well, such as for Business or Technology, etc.  I may just do another search for programs for other fields of study.

Thank you BJ for this post - I've been looking at this program (haven't spoken to anyone yet but left a voicemail with them) at Life Univ. I'd be looking at the general track. I am already a Master Certified Life Coach from another organization. This stuff is "my jam" and I'd be willing to pass up a competency-based program to do something that really interests me. (I'm sure an MS in I/O Psych would be more useful at work but this looks to be a lot more fun and wouldn't seem so much like work.)

With a program like this where they say it's offered in a 3 quarter online program and Spring has 5 classes, does that mean you are expected to take all 5 classes during that quarter? If you don't take them, do you have to wait for them to come along again next spring? 

Sorry if this is a stupid question. I haven't come across anything like this. It's usually "these are the required classes" and you take at your own pace. 

Thanks in advance for any input!
TESU BALS March 2020!
