M.A. - Clinical Psychology
Notre Dame de Namur University has long been known for the quality of psychology therapy programs leading toward MFT licensure. The Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology (MFT) prepares graduates well to pursue their goals of becoming practicing therapists. The MA Clinical Psychology program is based upon the scientist-practitioner model. We currently offer two programs in this area: MA in Clinical Psychology and MA in Clinical Psychology/MFT. At NDNU we emphasize both theoretical and experiential learning while preparing our students in the major knowledge bases in clinical psychology, counseling, and psychotherapy. The degree prepares students for two opportunities: for future doctoral studies in the field of psychology, or as a terminal degree (MFT) for mental health professionals who wish to work within a broad range of clinical and administrative settings within the healthcare field. NDNU's Clinical Psychology program meets the educational requirements of MFT (Marriage and Family Therapy) Licensure as defined by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS.) Specializations include health, psychology, psychoanalysis, gerontology, and cognitive behavioral therapy, and specialized training in assessment, pharmacology and neuropsychology. Applications accepted Spring, Summer and Fall terms.
Notre Dame de Namur University is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
