Helpful questions. Healing answers.
Encourage and empower others through a Christian approach to psychology.
Your Passion: Human Flourishing
You realize two basic truths in life: People need help. And God’s Word provides healing. Connect both through a (B.S.) degree in psychology, at NGU.
Your future in psychology is diverse. Counselor, psychologist, and therapist, of course. But also, lawyer, social worker, special education teacher, wellness coach, and more. A practical, God-honoring approach to psychology is crucial for individual and community health.
Experience Learning – In the Lab and On the Job
It All Begins with Research
Conduct research. Study the results. Present your findings. That’s a large part of your future in psychology, and it begins at NGU. Design and conduct your own research studies. Utilize SPSS statistical software to manage and analyze your data. Then, present your findings at regional and national conferences.
Love Psychology? Join the Club!
Meet and learn from renowned public speakers in the field of psychology. Grow through leadership opportunities. Enjoy the fellowship and support of fellow psych students. Find all of this, and more, through NGU’s Psychology Club and the Psi Chi International Honor Society.
Lab Experience and Work Studies
Practice what you learn, as you learn. Apply operant and classical conditioning techniques with animals at NGU’s state-of-the-art lab. Or, expand your experience through various work-study programs. Even earn part-time money while completing your studies.
And Finally – Launch Your Career
Dive straight into your psychology career or further your studies through graduate school. Prepare resumes. Attend mock interviews. Search the job market. Research graduate programs. Complete several courses meant to prepare you for a variety of specialized careers. It’s how you graduate fully prepared to launch your career, at NGU.
A Practical, Christian Approach to Psychology
Elevate Your Perspective
You’ll also take Chapel every semester, and Cultural Events for the first four semesters. You earn credit through attendance, and each course counts as half a credit. This is the NGU difference, how you find your peak performance and elevate your perspective, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
