Psychology

 

The bachelor’s degree in Psychology focuses on the understanding of human behavior through classic theories, relevant research, with a synthesis of the two through a Christian world view.  Thus, students will take fundamental courses (general psychology, human development, statistics and research, personality and abnormal, physiological, and history and systems of psychology, etc…) taught by Christian faculty.  This foundation will prepare the student for the world of work and/or graduate school.  Students will take classes from academicians with clinical and research experience.  Each student will conduct on original research study and can present their research findings at the TNU Undergraduate Research Symposium.  Some of these studies are published in peer-reviewed journals.  Students will also engage in a practicum, where they are placed in the community for first-hand experience.  Students may also opt for a full internship for more intensive real-world experience.
