B.A. in Psychology

Making The World Better—One Person At A Time

Most adult students that embark upon a psychology degree are interested in a career in either social work, school psychology, or the counseling profession. For this reason, our academically rigorous, student-focused psychology program prepares students for entrance into graduate school. As such, a student will earn from NU a well-rounded psychology degree that sets him or her up for graduate school success and, subsequently, a rewarding career in the counseling profession.

We’ve Reduced Tuition by 30%

As a 35-year-old single mother, the thought that it was too late in my life kept me from coming back to school. The CAPS program gave me the opportunity to finish my Bachelor’s Degree in the same timeline of a regular day time student while I attended class only one night a week. The format is created to help each individual to succeed!

The graduate with this degree should:

  • Have knowledge regarding the purpose of the human mind and behavior from both a scientific and distinctive Christian worldview
  • Be equipped with a well-rounded  social science foundation  
  • Have a better understanding of multicultural considerations as integrated into the psychology curriculum
  • Consider the meaning and application of social justice and social advocacy within a psychological and cultural context 
  • Understand the healing process for hurting individuals and communities in a local and global context
  • Be excellent candidates for further graduate studies in the fields of clinical and counseling psychology
World class education partnered with a culturally diverse cohort experience, which has benefitted me both personally and professionally.
