Biola's Undergraduate Psychology Department's mission is aligned with that of the University: biblically centered education, scholarship and service- equipping psychology majors in mind and character to impact the world for the Lord Jesus Christ. The objectives of the Psychology Department's program are as follows:
The Psychology major provides opportunities to study a broad spectrum of issues concerning human nature and functioning from a distinctly Christian worldview. Since students select a psychology major for a variety of reasons, course offerings are designed to provide as much flexibility as possible. There are seven courses required of all students, and we offer a choice of eight different specializations from a variety of theoretical, applied, or professional areas: Clinical/Counseling, Cross Cultural, Family & Child, General Psychology, Health Psychology, Industrial/Organizational Psychology, Psychology & Ministry and Graduate School Preparation. Students preparing for graduate study in psychology take a broad set of courses in the research and theory of psychology as well as foundational courses in applied areas.
