The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD-Psy) program was designed in response to the growing interest in psychology as a discipline of study and the need for advanced studies, including research beyond the master's level. This degree program emphasizes theory, research, and scholarship, culminating in a dissertation.
The Doctor of Philosophy in Psychology program in Gender Diversity Studies reflects Northcentral University’s goal to train students who can serve today’s diverse communities, and is an excellent option if you want to further examine the social, cultural and biological foundations of human sexuality, gender and sexual orientation. It is absolutely critical that mental health providers and educators exhibit sensitivity to the myriad of issues, challenges and changes in our current understanding of mental health, gender and healthy sexuality. In this specialization, you will gain expertise in theory and research skills and develop ways to apply your learning about gender diversity in your own community.
Throughout your courses, you will benefit from working One-to-One with faculty who are experts in their field and who will provide you with valuable feedback and support. This specialization expands the breadth of knowledge for existing mental health caregivers, and prepares you to serve as researchers, educators, and consultants in this extremely important field.
