About the Master of Arts Program
NCCU’s master’s degree in psychology presents
prominent theories and general systems in psychology
successfully preparing students to work with a range
of human issues in a number of settings. The program
offers concentrations in clinical and general psychology.
The curriculum normally appeals to three groups of
- Those who seek the education and training to
engage in the practice of psychology and in the
provisions of health services as defined in the North
Carolina Practice Act, or expect to become technical
assistants to professional psychologists;
- Those preparing for positions in which a knowledge
of psychology is valuable; and
- Those who expect to continue graduate study leading
to the doctorate.
The requirements for admission include: a bachelor’s
degree for admission of at least 30 semester hours
or equivalent in psychology or related discipline from
an accredited institution; a minimum undergraduate
cumulative GPA of 2.7 based on a 4 point scale; a minimum of 3.0 in the
undergraduate major; and completion of departmental
requirements such as course prerequisites.
