Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2020

NDNU offers a great practical program. While theoretical orientations are well covered, all of the professors have extensive clinical experience and integrate it well into their classes. The practical prientation really enriched the learning experience.

Degree: Clinical Psychology

The professors are incredible and give you a lot of knowledge about different clients you may have. You get to apply that knowledge fairly often in class such as how you would treat this client or what you think the underlying issue is. You are constantly gaining knowledge which is great.

Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 2016

I enjoyed the small class sizes and the professors. The smaller program allowed for 1:1 feedback from the professors and ability to build relationships with both students and staff. Classes were very applicable to the profession and prepared students for the clinical exam. I have nothing but great things to say about my experience at NDNU for grad school!

The graduate program provides an opportunity to gain extensive knowledge and clinical case exposure from professors who are practicing clinicians. The program focuses on understanding the whole person in order to create genuine therapeutic relationships and successful treatment outcomes.

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

The MS program of clinical psychology has much support from the faculty and staff there. They are on top of things and care a lot about the students they teach. Classrooms tend to be small and the professors always learn your name within a couple of meetings. Class usually hold great discussions about the readings assigned and tie it with everything related to the career of psychology. The down side is the cost of living in the Bay Area and there is hardly any help for graduate level students.

Small inclusive program that really gives their all to assist us in anyway possible and make us feel like we matter and will succeed. I did my undergrad here and I'm taking no break. Continuing my education at NDNU is one of the best things I've decided to do. I just love the type of community and support they offer.

Wonderful program, full of dedicated students and fabulous faculty. I love Dr. M - her commitment to her discipline and her students shows in every classroom. The campus is convenient and very beautiful. I highly recommend this program to all who are interested in social work or therapy.

What really distinguishes NDNUs psychology program from other graduate programs, is the sense of community and collaboration that the department offers. The Clinical psychology department as whole, values each individual student and what they have to bring and offer to the program that is unique. As networking is crucial for graduate students, NDNUs psychology department accelerates the networking process, as both students and professors are eager to collaborate with one another. In addition, all professors are working professionals in the filed which brings more real life perspectives into the classroom setting. Both students and professors are supportive, motivating, and unquestionably passionate about the field. Furthermore, NDNUs program doesnt just cater to one specific modality or therapeutic technique. Instead, the program provides knowledge on a wide variety of different views, modalities, and therapeutic interventions and techniques.

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

Notre Dame de Namur provides a unique combination of welcoming diversity and academic rigor. As a person with a full-time day job, NDNU was a perfect fit because most of the classes are in the evenings and weekends. The orientation is eclectic in the modalities taught but with a strong leaning toward psychoanalytic understanding. Cross-cultural appreciation and community involvement are also stressed. My time at NDNU has been the most enriching time of my life. At age 50+, it's never too late to expand your career.
