Faulkner University

Behavioral Sciences

In the Counseling (COU), Psychology (PY) and Sociology (SY) programs, we prepare our students for dynamic careers that focus on helping individuals and families meet the challenges of a changing world. The breadth of COU, PY, and SY programs encompass a complex array of information on child development, how adults develop and maintain satisfying relationships, and other issues central to living a quality life. The COU, PY, and SY programs integrate research based theories, skills, and methods for counseling into the Christian worldview. Learning is enhanced by the application of counseling theories and Christian beliefs to real world issues. This model of integration and application helps students understand the interconnections between academic, career, mental, family, social, and spiritual life.

This approach allows students to appreciate the importance between home and school relationships. Further insight is given into maintaining an appropriate balance in husband-wife interactions, parent-child relationships, and workplace demands.

The COU, PY and SY programs provide students for a wide variety of careers including:

  • teaching and administering programs for children, adolescents and adults;
  • parent and family education;
  • mental health;
  • children's and family ministries.

COU, PY and SY graduates can also pursue graduate studies in counseling, psychology, sociology, law, education, special education, family life, ministry, and marriage and family therapy.
