About VUSC Psychology

The Department of Psychology seeks to enhance students’ understanding of human nature. Proceeding from a Christian understanding of humans created in the image of God, the psychology major explores multiple perspectives of human nature, including cognitive, behavioral, biological, social-cultural, and spiritual. All students learn the skills necessary to conduct research and to evaluate carefully others’ research, with the goal of increasing their understanding of human nature. Students interested in counseling are introduced to basic theories and methods relevant to providing counseling services.

The psychology major prepares students either to secure employment immediately following graduation or to continue on to pursue advanced study in psychology or counseling at the graduate level.
