Get to the Heart of the Human Experience
National University’s Bachelor of Arts in Integrative Psychology program offers a complementary alternative to the traditional science-based psychology major. With a holistic psychology degree, you’ll understand and appreciate an individual’s deepest values, emotions, inter- and intrapersonal relationships, and relationships with the physical and spiritual world. In this holistic program, the focus is on the subjective human experience and the human condition.
Throughout the program, you’ll get a sense of the whole person by developing knowledge and skills important to health and growth, like self-reflection, consciousness, and creativity. Using the perspectives of existential-humanistic, phenomenon science, transpersonal, and scientific psychology, deeper layers will be revealed. As a graduate of the program, you’ll be prepared to help others increase acceptance and responsibility for their lives and will be well-equipped to pursue advanced study.

Existence of a criminal history may also subject an individual to denial of an initial application for a certificate, registration, or license and/or result in the revocation or suspension of an existing certificate, registration, or license. Requirements can vary by state, occupation, and/or licensing authority.
NU graduates will be subject to additional requirements on a program, certification/licensure, employment, and state-by-state basis that can include one or more of the following items: internships, practicum experience, additional coursework, exams, tests, drug testing, earning an additional degree, and/or other training/education requirements.
All prospective students are advised to review employment, certification, and/or licensure requirements in their state, and to contact the certification/licensing body of the state and/or country where they intend to obtain certification/licensure to verify that these courses/programs qualify in that state/country, prior to enrolling. Prospective students are also advised to regularly review the state’s/country’s policies and procedures relating to certification/licensure, as those policies are subject to change.
