Department of Psychology
Understanding the basic principles that guide human behavior can help us to live more successfully in this world. The Undergraduate Psychology Program is focused on providing our students with a strong foundation in these principles. We teach students how to investigate and think about "wonderfully made" persons by integrating the biological dimensions, interpersonal/social contexts, and psychological perspectives.
Given this broad focus, a major or minor in psychology can be of great value to students who wish to combine this knowledge with studies from other disciplines such as business, communications, criminal justice, philosophy, sociology, and religion. As well, our undergraduate program provides an excellent foundation for those students who plan to pursue an advanced degree in psychology or counseling. Former students who have maintained their grades have been accepted to Master's and Doctoral degree programs throughout the country. Finally, the department of Psychology also offers a Master's degree in Family Psychology which prepares students for licensure and practice as a therapist in a variety of settings.
