About NNU's Doctorate in Clinical Psychology

The PsyD program is designed to be a dual entry-point 4- or 5-year program, accommodating those entering directly from a psychology BA program or those with an MA degree in a social science field. 
The full 5-year program, for those entering directly from a psychology BA program, consists of 127 credits—4 years of coursework and a dissertation, with a final pre-doctoral internship year. Those entering with an MA degree bypass the first year, allowing for a second entry-point into the PsyD program.
The program includes a 3 or 4 year full-time academic residency requirement depending on entry, followed by a full-time 1-year internship experience.

New cohorts begin in August of each year. The application deadline is December 15 of the previous fall.

NNU is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). The NNU PsyD program will be submitting an Intent to Apply application to the American Psychological Association (APA) Commission on Accreditation in the spring of 2023.

Early on in my academic journey I realized that the NNU community really cared about your success—and not just in the classroom setting. Everyone at NNU wants to see you grow in all aspects of your life. The professors care about you both in and out of their classroom. I wasn’t just “another student” but a valuable member of the NNU community.
