As a psychology major, you will learn how to critically evaluate theories of human behavior and explore research methods that will further your understanding of people. Theory is put into practice as you are mentored by faculty that include trained clinicians in private practice. You’ll also get the opportunity to join a research team and participate in various projects, and will graduate prepared for a career in the social services or business, as well as for graduate school.
Students will benefit from the presence of our doctor of psychology (PsyD) program, one of only a handful of Christian psychology degree programs in the nation accredited by the American Psychological Association. This gives you access to a larger group of faculty members, more library resources, and opportunities to conduct research with PsyD faculty and graduate students.
Our psychology program also gives you options. Would you like to earn a BA or a BS? Our BA degree has a greater emphasis on applied learning than does the BS, which places a greater emphasis on scientific methodology.
