Psychology at NDNU

The Department of Psychology and Sociology offers a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree, as well as a minor in psychology. Students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology will study within the various subfields of psychology, including cognitive, social, developmental and abnormal psychology.

At the graduate level NDNU’s Clinical Psychology Department (CPD) approaches the study of psychology with a value on the development of the whole person throughout the lifespan. The CPD trains students to become either licensed or unlicensed mental health professionals qualified to pursue careers in medical, mental health, allied health, administration, social service, educational, geriatric, research and business settings, as well as prepare students to pursue future doctoral studies in psychology or a related field.

The MSCP degree program offers two concentrations and one certificate:

  1. The MSCP, at 37 units, prepares students for future doctoral studies, and can serve as a terminal degree for unlicensed, master’s level mental health professionals to work within a broad range of clinical, social service, medical, research, and administrative settings.
  2. The MSCP/MFT concentration, at 60 units, enables students to pursue a clinical license as a marriage and family therapist (MFT). It also prepares students for doctoral studies.
  3. The MSCP/MFT/LPCC concentration, at 67 units, enables students to pursue clinical licenses to practice as a marriage and family therapist (MFT) and as a professional clinical counselor (LPCC). It may also be for students interested in doctoral studies.
  4. Optional Certificate in Clinical Gerontology (8 units) within all degree programs.
