Psychology/Counseling

Churches and para-church organizations increasingly turn to Christian counselors for assistance in meeting the needs of employees, members, and clients. Counseling in a Christian context can make a significant contribution to improving the live experience of individual Christians and developing a healthier society. This degree does not lead to credentialing in Counseling, which almost always requires a graduate degree.

Graduates who complete the Psychology/Counseling Major will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a detailed knowledge of psychological terminology;
  • Access and evaluate available community resources that may be helpful (e.g.
  • Professional counselors, health practitioners, support groups);
  • Provide counseling on a non-professional basis within one’s own church setting;
  • Comprehend and participate in research studies in psychology;
  • Demonstrate skills in selecting and using Scripture in counseling process.
