In accordance with the DBU mission statement, the undergraduate
psychology discipline seeks to provide Christ-centered quality
higher education in the field of psychology and to encourage
students to integrate the subject matter of psychology with
the teachings of Christianity.
A major in psychology provides the student
with an overview of the field of psychology and an in-depth
study of selected areas and subjects in this multi-faceted
discipline. The psychology curriculum features courses in
both counseling and in more technical or research-oriented
subjects. While the integration of psychology and Christianity
is a vital concern in each class, a whole course also is devoted
to this issue. Graduates with a major in psychology are equipped
for entry-level positions in business, education, industry,
the mental health field, and other areas where a psychology
background is either required or enhances the individual's
qualifications for employment. They also are prepared for
graduate work in psychology or counseling which can lead to
professional careers in those fields.
Goals of the Psychology Major

- Students will be able to integrate the principles of psychology with those of Christianity.
- Students will be prepared for entry-level positions in careers related to the field of psychology and/or for graduate work in the fields of psychology and counseling.
