Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (Evening)
The Department of Psychology and Sociology offers a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree, as well as a minor in psychology. The Psychology Evening Program is the only academic yet accelerated B.A. degree in psychology in the Bay Area. Courses are offered in 7- and 15- week format during the day or the evening, so students can complete the program in a fashion best suited to their needs. The curriculum is designed to optimally prepare students for graduate work in psychology (either doctoral or master's level). It is identical in every way to our day degree, including the small classes (12-20) and individualized advising and attention. The core curriculum spans the different emphases in psychology, from the clinical to the social to the experimental. Special emphasis is placed on helping the psychology student to develop analytic skills and interdisciplinary perspectives, through lively classroom work, individual research, and community based learning experiences. Students are encouraged to develop their own personalized curriculum after fulfilling the core courses, to equip them to bring innovation and interpersonal knowledge to their initial employment, or to go on to further graduate work. If one has many units still to complete, it is also possible to take a minor in another field in the evening, providing added value to your degree (e.g. Art, English, Religious Studies, Business).
Psychology Articulated Program
Evening Psychology offers special articulated programs with NDNU's graduate programs in Art Therapy, Clinical Psychology, as well as NDNU's Special Education program. Articulated programs allow qualified students in their last year of work to begin study for the master's degree, while completing the bachelor's degree. They are allowed to enroll in up to six units of selected graduate coursework that fulfills both their undergraduate psychology elective requirements, while also counting toward the master's degree. Articulated programs have great appeal for students planning to continue their education beyond the bachelor’s degree, since these agreements allow the students to save even more time and money. Undergraduate psychology majors who are interested in NDNU’s Art Therapy graduate program are encouraged to also minor in Art.
NDNU admits students throughout the year for fall, spring and summer semesters. Please review the NDNU General Catalog for complete admission requirements.
Please note: 30 units must be taken in residence at NDNU, including the final 12 units. Financial aid is available for evening students who take at least six units per semester.
