Most importantly, you’ll be challenged to integrate your faith into your investigation of human behavior.

What You Can Earn

Bachelor of Arts in Psychology or Bachelor of Science in Psychology (coming Fall 2024) with a Concentration in Counseling and Human Development

You’ll complete at least 120 credit hours, with 45-46 of those credits in psychology courses (12 hours specific to the Counseling and Human Development track).


With a counseling and human development education, you may choose to work in a traditional clinical setting, counseling individuals and families.
