Welcome to the World of Psychology
To understand psychology, a holistic approach is essential. The psychology department emphasizes "psychology as a human science." We encourage students to use lived experiences as a primary source of psychological data. Students are exposed to experiences that foster rigorous and creative learning. Our programs introduce students to a variety of concepts and experiences that cement self-understanding. Our department values scholarship, critical thinking, discernment, personal growth, and creativity.
The psychology department has 3 programs of study:
- Bachelor of Science
- Master of Arts
- Doctoral (PhD)
The psychology department has drawn international attention for its unique programs.
Our department is regarded as a center for humanistic psychology.
We are one of only two programs in the United States with a focus on humanistic and transpersonal psychology.
Our courses have integrated humanistic and transpersonal psychology with critical and psychodynamic perspectives. The psychology department aims to provide an educational environment where social and personal issues can be addressed. This requires knowledge of humanistic and alternative approaches.
