Psychology

The Bachelor of Science in Psychology degree provides theoretical and applied understanding of psychological principles to prepare you for graduate study, entry-level positions in the helping professions, or careers requiring a psychology background.

Northwestern's Adult Undergraduate Psychology program is set apart from the study of psychology at a secular college or university. With a view of psychological principles through the context of a biblical lens, a focus on ethics and the required biblical coursework, you will be equipped to apply and practice the knowledge and skills you gain from a Christian perspective.

Marriage and Family concentration

The Psychology degree includes a concentration in Marriage and Family, through which you will examine family communication, problem solving and relationships and explore a systems perspective on family dynamics. You will also study counseling intervention strategies.

You may choose to take some concentration courses for graduate credit in the Master of Arts in Human Services program (graduate tuition charges apply).
