The psychology department prepares students to evaluate psychology concepts from a biblically informed Christian Worldview, to be intelligent consumers of research, and to possess pre-professional knowledge and skills. A balanced curriculum brings together the theoretical and practical dimensions of psychology through experiential courses and opportunities for community-based internships.
The major objectives are for students to: 1). Demonstrate a practical working knowledge of the science and profession of psychology, 2). Investigate psychological concepts in light of a biblically informed Christian worldview in order to more effectively serve Christ and their community, and 3). Obtain a foundation in psychology sufficient for further professional training or graduate work in such fields as counseling, clinical psychology, criminal justice, social services, or school counseling.
