We Stand Out

Accessible Faculty

A low student-to-faculty ratio allows students to interact frequently with faculty as they receive advising and pursue their academic career.

Preparation for the Future

Our programs are designed to provide all students with what they need to enter the workforce or pursue further education.

Solid Research Experience

Classes in research methods equip students to learn and conduct research, an essential skill for those who will seek admission to graduate programs.

Christian Worldview

An added Christian dimension integrates theology with psychology. Many students choose a major in psychology to prepare for ministry work. We also have many who double major with Christian studies.

Pi Gamma Mu

Juniors or seniors can join this international honor society for the social sciences.

Cross-Cultural Learning

Students have opportunity to earn class credit through faculty-led cross-cultural travel experiences.

Professional Conferences

Faculty offer students opportunities to attend professional conferences which often include student presentations.

Prepared for Continued Study

Many psychology majors continue to pursue graduate degrees, and our programs are designed to equip graduates to excel as they do.

Prepared for the Workforce

Although many psychology majors enter the workforce after graduation, if they choose to take fundamental research courses, they can also successfully pursue graduate work.

Variety of Job Opportunities

A major in psychology prepares graduates for many job markets, including government service, social services and Christian ministry.
