The Psychology Department at NWOSU offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a Master of Counseling Psychology (MCP) degree, which meets some of the requirements to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (L.P.C.) in the state of Oklahoma. The coursework needed to complete L.P.C. requirements are offered post-Master’s at NWOSU.
Courses are offered on three campuses: Alva, Enid, and Woodward. The MCP program is offered fully on the Alva and Enid campuses. Undergraduate courses are offered in Alva, Enid, and Woodward. Currently, the complete undergraduate program is offered only in Alva. Required courses are offered in both Alva and Enid and enough electives are currently offered in Enid to complete the Psychology major. Some graduate and undergraduate courses are offered in Woodward.
The department uses interactive television as a distance learning tool to hold some graduate and undergraduate courses on multiple sites.
