Bachelor's degrees in Counseling and Psychology
In the Counseling (COU) and Psychology (PY) programs we prepare our students for dynamic careers that help people meet the challenges of a changing world. The COU and PY programs integrate research based theories, skills, and methods for counseling and psychology with the Christian worldview. This model of integration and application helps students understand the interconnections between academic, career, family, social, and spiritual life.
The COU and PY programs offer a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Science, an interdisciplinary minor within Counseling, Psychology, Sociology, and a cross disciplinary minor for non-Social and Behavioral Sciences students. COU and PY graduates can pursue careers teaching and administering programs for children, adolescents and adults; parent education; family life education; mental health; children's ministries; and family ministries.
The COU and PY programs also serve as an excellent undergraduate foundation for students pursuing advanced study in law, counseling, family therapy, psychology, and social work. In addition, the COU and PY programs' minors provide students a solid foundation for careers in fields such as education, business, and ministry.
Individuals interested in a pursing a minor in Counseling or Psychology should consult a program faculty member for the current course requirements. The minimum requirements for a minor are 18 hours of approved courses in the minor area with a least a "C" grade or better in each course.
