The major in psychology with a concentration in human development seeks to enhance students’ understanding of human nature with an emphasis on human development across the life span from both a secular world view as well as a Christian perspective.

Psychology: Human Development (B.A.)

The program 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 carefully evaluate others’ research. The Psychology program prepares students for employment, especially in human service agencies, or for graduate study.
