Although we seldom contemplate it, any given person is a walking/talking "psychology case study" of sorts! As a Psychology major, you will become more knowledgeable of theory and research that provides insight into human behavior and experience.
In the process, you will be well-prepared for a variety of careers, ranging from entry-level positions in many different fields to graduate work in psychology or counseling.
This major is a natural fit for you if you are interested in:
- Helping people
- Understanding people
- Exploring in-depth all the factors that 'make people tick'
As a student, you'll work within a Christian environment as you explore how Psychology contributes to understanding the human experience of God's creation.
Class sizes are small enough to:
- Enable small-group work
- Foster great opportunities to get to know fellow students
- Give you greater direct access to professors who have a mixture of research and practical experience in their fields
Thus, courses emphasize establishing a link between topics discussed in the classroom and day-to-day life as you experience it.
