Counseling Psychology

The Counseling Psychology major provides academic preparation in foundational psychological and counseling concepts, intellectual preparation through advanced studies of theory and philosophy of persons and relationships, and professional preparation in counseling laboratory and practicum events. Knowledge of the Bible and an understanding of human personality are combined in teaching psychology and counseling. Psychology and theology are integrated while retaining priority on evangelical doctrine and biblical authority. Students are encouraged to seek emotional wholeness and spiritual maturity, realizing healthy persons make better counselors.
