Why study psychology at North Central University?

The College of Arts and Sciences is the stepping stone to your future, we refine your talent and take you to the next level. We are unified around the central theme of preparing people to be leaders in the marketplace, ministers in the world, and servants in the varied contexts of life.

Classroom Experience That Matters

Because we do what we do with active learning, our graduates are getting a ton more experience early on, which leads to greater internship opportunities, and ultimately greater career choices. Due to our smaller campus size, every student is seen (not lost in a crowd) and provided the chance to make awesome connections.

Every professor brings to the classroom exceptional psychology experience. In addition to having wildly successful careers prior to teaching, our psychology professors are still actively engaged in the real world as psychology experts. This makes a huge difference in what is taught in North Central University classrooms.
