The Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology is focused on preparing students to be practitioner-scholars who integrate faith into their roles as clinical psychologists. The Psy.D. program is built on three pillars: clinical competence, academic rigor and faith integration. Graduates of this program will be prepared for licensure in the practice of clinical psychology, which takes many forms including psychotherapy/counseling, psychological and cognitive assessment and program administration.
New cohorts begin every year. General Standing students start every August and Advanced Standing students start every May. The application deadline is January 15 of the preceding Fall.
NNU is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). The NNU Psy.D. 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.
