Psychology

Are you fascinated by the ways people think, feel, and behave?

Study Psychology with a Christian understanding of the human condition. Learn from experts who are dedicated to excellence in research and in service to Christ. Gain insight into how the people, relationships, and societies around you work, while also developing the research skills to analyze them. 

As our students study Psychology, we encourage them to grow in love for God and the people He has made. To that end, every program is enhanced with courses in Bible and theology.

Discover new ways of seeing the world and your place in it. View our programs in Psychology below.
