Bachelor of Arts in Psychology - Evening Program

The Bachelor of Arts in Psychology is the only academic yet accelerated degree evening program of its kind in the Bay Area, and is designed to prepare students for graduate work in psychology, as well as any career requiring comprehensive knowledge of interpersonal dynamics and human nature. The field of psychology includes career options in research and teaching, clinical psychology, forensic science and neuropsychology, as well as counseling and school psychology.  Psychology professionals are in demand and are sought by a variety of organizations, as are college graduates with psychology-related skills.

See the NDNU General Catalog for program requirements and course descriptions.


  • Our evening program curriculum is identical in every way to our day degree — a unique aspect of our program — including the small classes and individualized faculty advising and attention.
  • The core curriculum spans the different emphases in psychology, from the clinical to the social to the experimental.
  •  NDNU’s location attracts students from a diverse background and enables us to offer small classes in convenient locations both on campus and at Cañada College.
  • If one has many units still to complete, it is possible to take a minor in another field in the evening, providing added value to your degree.
  • The program offers special articulated programs with NDNU’s graduate programs in Art Therapy, Clinical Psychology and Special Education. These articulated programs allow qualified students in their last year of undergraduate work to begin study for the master’s degree, while completing the bachelor’s degree.

Psychology Articulated Program

Evening Psychology offers special articulated programs with NDNU's graduate programs in Art Therapy and 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.
