Program Details

The Master of Arts (MA) program enables students to pursue advanced study in psychology that can lead to careers in the helping professions, industry, government, and nonprofit organizations. The program also provides students with the foundational knowledge and skills necessary for doctoral-level study.

The Master of Arts in Psychology program in Gender Diversity Studies at Northcentral University reflects NCU’s goal to train students who can serve in diverse communities. Likewise, the School of Psychology recognizes how crucial it is for today’s mental health providers and educators to possess a certain level of sensitivity to the myriad of issues, challenges, and changes in our current understanding of mental health, gender, and healthy sexuality. 
The Gender Diversity Studies specialization expands the breadth of knowledge for current and future mental health caregivers. You will benefit from studying One-to-One with doctoral faculty who offer valuable feedback and support as you examine social, cultural and biological foundations that influence gender diversity. You will also gain expertise in theory and research skills, and develop ways to apply your learning about gender diversity in your own community.
