Hi Mindy, it may depend on where you're based, you haven't specified.

Hello, Paul,

I am in California, USA. I am planning to take online courses and get a degree in Astrology from a university. I think most of the schools offering online courses should accept all students from worldwide. I have searched online and some schools in the US and England have come up from my search, but I am not sure which one has better program and reputation. Would you mind sharing some ideas with me or giving me any suggestions? Thank you very much!

I guess it depends on the kind of astrology you're interested in. James mentions Chris Brennan's course, but this is more learning for learning's sake, you do not get any qualification or diploma after completing the coursework. If you want some kind of accreditation, then I am more familiar with the setup in England, where I live, than with the states.

A good place to start your research would be Kepler College:
http://www.kepler.edu/

I know some people who have enjoyed the Mayo School of Astrology who offer correspondence courses:
http://www.mayoastrology.com/

If you're interested in more of a psychological approach, the CPA London offer a correspondence, I know they used to do a Diploma, but I'm not sure if they still offer it:
http://www.cpalondon.com/

Finally if you're looking for more of an academic qualification, you can get a distance learning MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology at the University of Wales:
http://www.trinitysaintdavid.ac.uk/en/courses/postgraduatecourses/maculturalastronomyandastrology/


I hope some American astrologers chime in with more information for you!

This is exactly what I have been looking for. Thank you so much that you have spent time replying my question with so much information. Laughing

I checked Chris Brennan's website that James posted. Thanks to James and Chris. Right, it is only good for learning, but I would also like to obtain some accreditation.

When I was checking Mayo School of Astrology that you mentioned, I also found Faculty Astrological Studies and The London School of Astrology. After reading some reviews, I think I like both Mayo and Faculty. I do not know which one should I choose yet. Confused

Mindy, I am a former student of the London School of Astrology myself, however the LSA do not offer a correspondence course in astrology, instead they leave that to their sister astrology company, the Mayo School of Astrology I mentioned in my reply.
I cannot comment one way or another on the Faculty, but I do know people who have loved their time at the Mayo school.

Later, if you become more interested in traditionally inclined approaches, Hellenistic in particular, then I recommend that you check out Chris Brennan's course, it may be a nice accompaniment to your astrological studies at whatever school you opt for.

Hi,

I'm a freshman at Portland School of Astrology - I can't recommend it yet. cause I didn't have many classes so far. But my professor asked me to prepare a speech based on my ongoing research (I need to write my essay first and then a research analysis) for the PSA Conference which will take place on 14-16th of February 2020.

Hello, maybe you would try to apply to Avalon School of Astrology. My friend studied there 2 years ago. He said it wasn't so bad. Moreover, he told me about academic writing affiliate programs as a part of an astrology course. You may try it.
