ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The program equips individuals with critical thinking skills that are scripturally based and methods that are culturally relevant and clinically sound. For some, the major will provide foundational studies in preparation for graduate school in the helping professions. Graduates who seek advanced education typically choose advanced studies in psychology, counseling, or social work. Others will apply this degree to work within mental health settings immediately after graduation and/or utilize the relational skills gained in this program in a wide range of careers, including business, human services, and ministry.

Leaders in the psychology department value the development of a Christian worldview in all graduates, academic excellence in teaching and learning, and continuous transformation toward wholeness in both the professors and the students.
