Applied Psychology @NCC

To meet the need for graduates who are able to function independently in a mental health and human service environment, the Applied Psychology program offers a liberal arts education, focused on counseling and human services. The program will serve students who either wish to transfer to a four-year institution, or students who wish to work in local organizations with a behavioral health or human services focus with this A.A.S. degree. Graduates of the program will be exposed to a wide diversity of knowledge, be asked to do practical thinking and problem-solving, cultivate knowledge of skills, values and ethics in the counseling profession, and develop a professional identity as a counselor.

This program is also offered as an online and remotely accessible degree option requiring some blended classes with live time. All online courses are facilitated by an instructor and include opportunities for student interaction and participation.
