Masters Degree Where to start?
I have my bachelors in Behavioral Science and am starting to explore masters degree options. I want to do it online and prefer self paced courses. I'm not sure what I would want a Masters degree in. What are some online options that are affordable and self paced? Is there anything else I should consider when looking at a program? Thanks in advance!
Self paced that I know of would be Walden University or WGU. They are both competency based. Walden has quite a few Psych MS programs. The have a half tuition for the entire program right now with some degrees.

I think Capella has a flex path degree program too. I’m sure others will have more info. But these will get you started.

MS - Management and Leadership, WGU will finish by October 1st (fingers crossed)
BS - Liberal Arts - Depths in Healthcare and Psychology, Excelsior College 2014
Certificate - Workers Comp Admin, UC Davis Extension, 1995
AS - Licensed Vocational Nursing and Selected Studies, Mesa College 1989
Certificate - Licensed Vocational Nursing (LVN), Mesa College 1977

Also, I will do the JD at Northwestern California University School of Law ( for personal reasons.   And maybe a MS in Forensic Psychology, just for fun.   Oh, and a BS in Animal Behavior.  And, maybe when I'm 85 a PhD in something fun.

JFK University's has a flex self-paced MBA program
In Progress: MS Cybersecurity, Georgia Tech (21/32cr), 2021?
BS IT Security, Western Governors University, 2018
BA Psychology, Thomas Edison State University, 2016
AA Sociology, Chaffey College, 2015

Not sure if competency-based is the same as self-paced? If your self-pace is to go a little slower, then competency-based is not the right fit. Instead, you'd want to find a school that was inexpensive, and would let you take 1 course at a time over a few years. But if you want to go fast, then CB is definitely the way to go.
